Ever wondered what the inside of the Salt Lake Temple looks like? Here’s a glimpse!
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has opened up a new exhibit where you can “virtually” tour the Salt Lake Temple through kiosks that include photos of the actual rooms in the temple accompanied by narration explaining the purposes of each room. The over 7 foot tall, 1/32nd scale model of the temple is on display at the Temple Square South Visitor’s Center. Read more about the exhibit here at Deseret News.

The Celestial Room. Mr. Ferrero Rocher and I sat in this room while we waited to be married.
The detail work on this model is simply amazing! Look at the pictures hanging on walls and the mural work. They look exactly like the originals.
The stairs make me dizzy just looking at them. It’s truly amazing what the pioneers were able to accomplish when they built this temple. Construction began in 1853 and the temple was finished in 1893, forty years to build!
We can’t wait for our next visit to Utah. We are definitely taking the kids to see this.
