On Monday, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ newly renovated Columbus Ohio Temple opened its doors to the media and special guests.
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine attended the first day of the event, alongside church leaders Elder Allen D. Haynie and Elder Vaiangina Sikahema of the North American Northeast Area presidency; Elder Kevin R. Duncan, executive director of the church’s Temple Department; and Elder Kevin W. Birch, who is an Area Seventy, per a release.
The temple will be open for touring and public viewing daily starting on April 29, and will run until May 13 — excluding Sundays. Open house tickets are available for everyone online, free of charge, with tours lasting about 50 minutes, reported The Church News.
