First Pictures Inside the Renovated Manti Temple & Open House Begins

It has been about two and a half years since the Manti Utah Temple was closed for renovations, and now the time has finally come to begin the open house, and later re-dedicate the historic pioneer temple. Latter-day Saints in the area will be welcoming the general public to the temple starting later this week. The public open house will last for about three weeks, beginning on March 14, and going through April 5, excluding Sundays. Specially-invited guests are beginning their tours of the new temple today. Prior to the open house starting on Thursday, the Church has released a number of beautiful photos of the interior of the temple. The pictures include the restored historical murals, which highly-skilled art conservators meticulously restored throughout the temple.

Most of the current renovations have been to upgrade building systems and support spaces in the annex and to preserve the sacred structure. A new entrance and gathering space were added on the north side of the annex along with a bride-and-groom exit. The landscape was upgraded with new plants and trees throughout the site.

Most interior improvements were completed in support areas of the temple, including a new marriage waiting room; additional lockers in dressing areas; and refreshed carpet, paint, and furniture in selected areas. Other interior changes included updated mechanical and plumbing systems and laundry equipment.

Once the public open house is complete and the temple has been cleaned again and prepared, it will be dedicated on Sunday, April 21, 2024.

Free reservations for tours can be made at www.churchofjesuschrist.org/temples/open-houses.
