Free reservations for the open house can be made at Boise Mormon Temple in the coming weeks.
The temple will be formally rededicated on Sunday 18 November 2012 in three sessions. In conjunction with the rededication of the temple, there will also be a cultural celebration featuring music and dance on Saturday, 17 November 2012.
The Boise temple is the 27th operating temple of the Church’s 138 temples worldwide. It is one of four temples in Idaho, with others in Twin Falls, Idaho Falls, and Rexburg. A fifth temple in Meridian is currently in the planning and approval phase.
The temple closed in July 2011 for an extensive renovation of the grounds and the interior. The variegated marble that characterized the temple’s exterior has been replaced with white granite. A new gold-leafed statue of the angel Moroni sits atop the temple’s tallest spire. Inside, the temple interior is fully renovated with new finishes and furnishings.
