Additional renderings showing the planned renovation of the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been released. The new renderings focus on the renovated endowment rooms.
In advance of the temple’s closure at the end of December, Church representatives briefed members of the media Wednesday, December 4, 2019, about the initial phase of construction and enhanced offerings for guests who visit Temple Square during the project.
“We are working hard to prepare for the beginning of construction in a few short weeks,” said Brent Roberts, managing director of the Church’s Special Projects Department. “The four additional renderings released today indicate the careful and elegant approach we are taking in the renovation of this house of the Lord. We also look forward to welcoming many visitors to Temple Square during the next few years to witness this historic renovation.”
Church President Russell M. Nelson announced the pioneer-era temple will close December 29, 2019, and will remain closed for approximately four years while undergoing a major structural and seismic renovation. The temple is expected to reopen in 2024 with a public open house. Watch the video below to learn more about the renovations. Click here to read more.
