INDIANA---After three years of construction on a 34,000-square-foot building, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is ready to be viewed by the public. It’s a one-time opportunity for those not of the Mormon faith. The Indianapolis Indiana Temple in Carmel will be dedicated Aug. 23, and from then on only Mormons will be allowed to enter. Church elder Kent Richards said the temple brings about a sense of peace. The temple is the most sacred space of the Mormon faith. It’s used for ordinances, or events, for Mormon families who wish to become closer to God.[link]
