Pictures of What the Pocatello Temple Will Look Like Inside
A few days ago, The Church released new 3D renderings (below) that show the interior designs of the new Pocatello Idaho Temple. Church representatives shared the renderings last week at a neighborhood open house for those who live near the temple site east of Satterfield Drive and Butte Street. They also had the site plan on display.
“This is an exciting and wonderful time for Pocatello,” said Brent Roberts, managing director of the Church’s Special Projects Department. “The temple design is beautiful, intricate, and has been meticulously planned. As with all temples, this building will be constructed with the finest materials and with careful attention to detail so that it can fulfill its sacred purpose as a house of the Lord.”
“This temple combines classical architectural elements as well as more modern art deco designs and draws upon colors native to the beautiful state of Idaho,” said Bill Williams, director of Temple Design, who was born and raised in Pocatello. “The details inside and outside the building will be stunning, from the art glass to the flooring to the grounds. Those who visit this temple will also be able to enjoy lovely views looking out to the west toward the Snake River Plain.”
The Pocatello Temple will be the sixth temple in Idaho, a state with nearly half a million members of the Church. The official groundbreaking will take place on March 16, 2019. Construction will begin after that and is expected to be completed within two to three years.
