Temple in Rexburg

The Church's newest temple has been constructed in Idaho, near the campus of Brigham Young University - Idaho in the town of Rexburg.

The Open House received about 200,000 visitors from all over who came to see the inside of the LDS Temple before its dedication. The Open House period has already ended, and the dedication ceremony is scheduled for February 10.

The dedication was postponed due to the death and funeral of President Gordon B. Hinckley. This piece from a local tv station in Idaho is informative.

Regarding the Church's temples and their Open House events, the official website declares:

During the open house, information will be provided to explain the different functions and ceremonies performed in the temple and answer questions. After the open house, the temple will be dedicated to the Lord and open only to worthy Church members.
