The 100th anniversary of the building of the Salt Lake LDS Temple will be celebrated with a series of special spring events.

Activities will include:- A major exhibit at the Museum of Church History and Art of the temple construction, opening March 27.

- The April 3 satellite broadcast of a feature-length film, "The Mountain of the Lord," between sessions of general conference.

- A special program during the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's April 4 broadcast of "Music and the Spoken Word."

The Days of '47 Parade in July will include a special focus on the temple.

The six-spired granite structure was dedicated April 6, 1893, following 40 years of painstaking construction. While it no longer dominates the city's skyline as it once did, it remains one of the most visible, visual symbols of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
