Our Temple Tour

On August 23, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. the Koyle family attended one of the open houses for the new Brigham City Temple. We parked out at the Autoliv parking area and rode the fancy french buses to the temple. (I took these photos with my phone so bear with me.)

We were dropped off at the back of the temple and proceeded to the underground parking area. They had false walls set up into several rooms. Each room had a TV and sound system set up to show a brief movie about temples (in general) and the history of Brigham City and the land and history for this temple.  From there we were moved along through the temple...all the way up one side and back down the other. They said they had 24,600 visitors that day. It was a little on the crowded side.

It was beyond beautiful and themed with peach blossoms. The round windows are cut glass peach blossoms and the carpets are carved with blossoms too. At the end of the tour we were let out into another room in the parking garage with water and cookies. Then we went out to the front and took some pictures there.

It was a fun family adventure and something we'll remember for a long time.
