SALT LAKE CITY | Monday, 12 March 2018 | The public will have six weeks to tour the newly renovated Jordan River Utah Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, beginning Saturday, March 17, 2018.

“Everything about the temple and the renovations of temples is to make certain that the experience the patron has is the best experience possible,” said Bishop Dean M. Davies, first counselor in the Presiding Bishopric. “They can come into the temple; it’s clean and it’s organized and it’s sacred and spiritual.”

The spire, with its drape-motif-inspired windows and sweeping exterior design, make the Jordan River Temple a familiar landmark in Utah’s Salt Lake Valley.

Mahogany-fluted millwork fashioned by specialists in northern and southern Utah compliment and further display the drape motif throughout the interior, while the floor features imported marble from Turkey.

Free tours will run through Saturday, April 28, 2018, except for March 18, 24, 25 and 31 and April 1, 8, 15 and 22. Complimentary tickets are available for the temple open house at
