Welcome to The Latter-Day Saint Temple Interior Tour
Holiness to The Lord
The House of The Lord
The Temple is the most revered and sacred place to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Temples are where the covenants that seal families through the eternities are established. Latter-day Saints feel that temples are literally God's house, and are respected as such.
Once a LDS temple is completed and dedicated, only church members who have been interviewed by both their bishop and stake president and hold valid temple recommends may enter. This is done to sustain the reverent spirit that should prevail in the House of God.
However, after a temple is completed and prior to the dedication the temples are open for the public to view and tour. Since many people I know across the net have not had the opportunity to tour through a Mormon temple and see how beautiful the various rooms inside are, I'm providing a pictorial temple tour and two multimedia LDS temple tours I found. I still highly recommended attending an actual temple tour at a public open house. The pictures are nice, but you miss feeling the spirit that's present there.

The pictures of the LDS temple rooms and interiors were taken from various church sources. I hope you enjoy them.
