Today began the month-long process of gold leafing the five towers of the temple.
A team of four flew in from Honolulu to begin the first step, which is to install scaffolding for the leafing experts.
They brought a truckload of materials and began putting it all together.
They are a spirited team.
It will take them a few days to assembled the hundreds of pieces.
Each tower will be accessible when they are done.
One step closer to completion.
They rented a giant extensible forklift to reach the towers safely.
