    Utah Temple Stands on Stilts [Apr 2013]

    For the past several months, Provo, Utah, residents have had a unique sight in their midst: the nearly seven-million-pound exterior of a 112-year-old building standing on 40-foot-high steel stilts. More than just an unusual construction site, this scene is the beginning of an extensive process to preserve the exterior of the Provo Tabernacle, a community landmark gutted by fire in December 2010. As The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced in October 2011, the building is being converted into a Mormon temple.

    Historic Temple Square

    Enjoy the beauty and serenity of historic Temple Square. Complimentary Garden Tour are available daily in over 40 languages.

    Temple Square is Utah's most visited attraction. Besides the centerpiece majestic 6-spired granite Salt Lake Temple there is also the domed Tabernacle, home of the famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the great Tabernacle organ. Two visitors' centers with interactive videos, films, Old and New Testament paintings, and an 11-foot replica of Thorvaldsen's Christus are additional attractions.

    Jordan River Temple

    One of the busiest temples in the Mormon Church today. Enjoy the peace and serenity of the outdoor gardens and fountain. This single spire edifice is the only temple dedicated by President Marion G Romney, 2nd counselor in the First Presidency, in November 1981.

    Why do Mormons build temples? And why are they closed on Sundays but bustling with activity the rest of the week?


    Bountiful Utah Mormon Temple

    8th Operating Temple in Utah and the first for Davis County. This majestic single-spire temple overlooks Bountiful and the Great Salt Lake. Dedicated in 1995, it serves LDS members in some 30 stakes of Davis County.

    Several sites feature a photo gallery, temple video, dedicatory prayer and articles explain why temples are so important to the Mormon faith.
