The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released the first interior photos of the Pocatello Idaho Temple as the public open house gets underway.
The temple sits high on the eastern foothills of Pocatello. The exterior is a light gray granite. The sacred structure is a streamlined classical architecture design and is patterned after other temples as well as other buildings in Pocatello. This will be Idaho’s sixth operating temple. Temples are in Boise, Idaho Falls, Meridian, Rexburg and Twin Falls. A seventh temple has been announced in Burley.
The art glass features wildflowers of the Idaho mountain desert, including the syringa, which is the Idaho state flower, and the bitterroot. The colors in the art glass are sage, representing the sagebrush of the region; gold, representing the wild grasses that turn gold in the summer; and pink and coral, representing the sunset, the bitterroot flower and Red Hill above Pocatello.
