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.

Featured Temple – Saint George, Utah
