Cut-Away Model Put on Display in the Laie Hawaii Temple Visitors' Center

The Church's fifth cut-away model of a temple has been put on display in the visitors' center for the fifth dedicated temple in operation—the Laie Hawaii Temple. The exquisitely detailed model took eight months to build on the mainland of the United States. It was then disassembled and shipped to Hawaii where it was reassembled in a week. The beautiful gift arrived in the 100th anniversary year of the temple, which was dedicated by President Heber J. Grant on Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 1919. Other cut-away models of temples are located in the visitors' centers at the Salt Lake Temple, Washington D.C. Temple, Paris France Temple, and Rome Italy Temple.
