Manti, Utah—Church historians have made an earth-shattering discovery that shows the original architects of the Manti Utah Temple had intended to install state-of-the-art 8K IMAX projectors into the building. There is no documentation explaining why the projectors where not included in the actual construction, but it was probably due to the fact that projectors had not yet been invented.
The projectors will allow the endowment to be presented in over 80 languages. This will be a tremendous boon to the City of Manti—one of the most linguistically diverse cities in the world.
One small setback to installing the projectors is that the entire interior of the temple will have to be destroyed—just like when you install a projector in any building. But that’s okay, because the original blueprints did not include murals, hand carved woodwork, or any of that stuff. Historians tell us that was all improvised by pioneer architects and not original to the design.
These new blueprints have allowed church architects to attain a level of historical restoration not previously thought possible. As President Nelson indicated when he announced the renovations, “Every reasonable effort will be made to honor and maintain the temple’s historic beauty. We will strive to preserve its reverent setting and character as originally directed by President Brigham Young.”
