ワシントンD.C.神殿のカットモデル Washington D.C. Temple cutaway model

Inside of LDS temple revealed in Washington, D.C., cutaway model, By Tad Walch, Deseret News Published: Saturday, Jan. 10 2015 9:05 p.m. MST

Deseret News WASHINGTON — The LDS Church unveiled a cutaway model of its Washington D.C. Temple on Saturday at the temple's visitors center, providing the public with an opportunity to experience a virtual open house.

The 1974 open house for the temple drew 750,000 visitors. Since then, only members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in good standing are allowed inside.

The model was the centerpiece of a special reception at the visitors center on Saturday night hosted by President Henry B. Eyring, first counselor in the First Presidency, and his brother, Elder Harden Eyring, who is serving as the visitors center director with his wife, Loi Anne.

In 2010, the church opened a new exhibit with a scaled cutaway model of the Salt Lake Temple at its visitors center on Temple Square. That model provided a look inside a temple that hasn't been open to the public since 1893.

Elder Harden Eyring said in a church press release that the D.C. Temple, a landmark in Washington, is "something of a mystery" to many in the area.

“We have been hoping and planning for this temple display for most of the two years my wife and I have been serving here at the Washington D.C. Temple visitors center,” he said. “Now that it has arrived and is ready for its introduction to the public, we are simply overwhelmed with how beautiful and inspiring it is.”

The model of the Washington D.C. Temple is a 1:48 replica more than 9 feet high.

"This model is remarkable in the sense that it catches the beauty and I think the feeling of reverence," President Henry B. Eyring said.
