The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Wednesday allowed media to tour the church's new temple in Broward County. There are 143 Mormon temples worldwide, but this is the first one in South Florida.

Before entering the temple, visitors were asked to place plastic slips over their shoes. It wasn’t a religious request, but more of a courtesy to the new building.
