The public will get its first glimpse this week inside the new Mormon temple rising east of Interstate 15 in Payson.
News media toured the edifice Tuesday, and the LDS Church provided photographs of the exterior and interior.
Free public tours will run every day, except Sundays, from Friday through May 23. Reservations are required and can be made here or by calling 1-800-537-6214. Spots are filling up fast.
Area youths will perform a cultural celebration June 6 at 7 p.m. in Brigham Young University's LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo.
The next day, LDS leaders will dedicate the temple in three sessions — at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Afterward, the building will be open only to Mormons with a "recommend," attesting to their adherence to LDS beliefs and practices.
