Holy Of Holies (LDS Church)
In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), the Holy of Holies is a room in the Salt Lake Temple wherein the church's president — acting as the Presiding High Priest of the church — enters to act as High Priest of Israel in direct relationship with God, in accordance with the LDS interpretation of the Book of Exodus. Hence, this Holy of Holies in the LDS Church temple is considered a modern cognate to the inner sanctuary of the Tabernacle and Temple in Jerusalem.
