SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Tuesday released a new video showing the inside of the recently renovated Washington D.C. Temple.

The 3D video allows viewers to scan each scene to choose to see different angles by using a virtual reality or Cardboard headset, or clicking and dragging on a computer. It displays multiple rooms in the temple and provides brief explanations about each room.

The Washington D.C. Temple was first dedicated in 1974 but was closed in March 2018 for renovations. The open house for the temple began on April 28 and runs through June 11. This is the first time the temple has been open to the public in 50 years.

The temple will be rededicated on Aug. 14 and will be open again for normal operations on Aug. 30.
