Many wonder and question about the temples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  This page is designed to be multi-purpose, and fully informative.   Here you can learn about the purpose of the temple, find a temple close by, know about upcoming open houses, and ask questions.  My hope is that you will understand the meaning of temples in the lives of members of the Church.

“The prospects that God has opened up to our view are wonderful and grand; the imagination cannot conceive of them. Come into the Temples and we will show you.” -Lorenzo Snow

This is a shot of the St. George temple that I took a couple of years ago.  It’s one of my favorite pictures.  The St. George temple was dedicated on April 6, 1877, and was the first operating temple.
