SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Mormon church says the renovated temple in Ogden will be opened in September.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Friday that the public will be allowed to visit the temple from Aug. 1 to Sept. 6 except on Sundays.

The rededication of the temple is scheduled for Sept. 21.

The temple was closed in April 2011. The renovation project included an overhaul of the exterior that includes new stone and art glass. Church officials say the temple also has reconfigured rooms, energy-saving systems, underground parking and newly landscaped exterior.

The Ogden temple was first opened in 1972 when it was just the 14th temple worldwide and fifth in Utah. Today, the church has 142 temples, including 13 in Utah.
