- 1st Mormon Temple in Texas
This Mormon Temple is known for its the six tall spires and large sloping roof, surrounded by trees and gardens. It is a sister building to the Boise Idaho Temple and the Chicago Illinois Temple.
When it was announced and built, the temple sparked a lot of opposition in this Bible Belt city. However, much of the negative feelings have mellowed, and some of the local religious leaders have re-evaluated their feelings about the Church because of the temple, said Pres. Douglas Brinley of the Texas Dallas Mission. The exterior of the 44,207-square-foot temple is light-colored marble tile walls and a dark gray slate roof.
With the LDS Church growing rapidly in the area, the temple was remodeled in 1987 to increase its size and make it more functional and efficient. The addition gave the temple 22,749 square feet of added space. The Dallas Texas Temple currently has a total floor area of 46,956 square feet, five ordinance rooms, and four sealing rooms.
Plans to construct the temple were announced 1 April 1981, Church leaders broke ground 22 January 1983, and President Gordon B. Hinckley, then a counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, dedicated the Dallas Texas Temple 19 October 1984. After a remodel, President Hinckley rededicated the temple 5 March 1989. The temple serves Latter-day Saints in Texas and Louisiana.
