New LDS Temple in Meridian Open House for the Public
The brand new Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Temple in Meridian is opening to the public for a free open house starting this Saturday, October 21 through November 19.
It’s not usually open to everyone. You have to be a practicing member of the LDS church and considered in good standing. But for the next few weeks this new temple is open for everyone to see.
Plans for this temple started over 6 years ago and construction started 3 years ago in 2014. The temple is over 67,000 square feet and is on close to 16 acres of land.
LDS Temples are built to a very high standard with high quality materials. There is stone from Egypt and furniture from Vietnam inside this beautiful structure.
The free open house is expected to bring between 200,000 and 300,000 people to visit the Temple.
Free reservations for the open house running from this Saturday through November 11 can be made HERE.
The temple will then be dedicated on Sunday, November 19, 2017
