HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

"We love and cherish our dedicated temples and the essential, exalting ordinances that are performed there. We thank heaven and the presiding Brethren that more and more of them are being built, giving more and more of us greater access to them."

Framing and Sheathing the Farmington New Mexico Temple

Light framing is filling in the spaces between the heavy columns of the Farmington New Mexico Temple, creating a steel skeleton for the sacred structure. A few sheathing panels have been attached to the southwest face. The pitched roof for the meetinghouse and institute facility can be seen behind the temple. It is the second to be constructed in the state of New Mexico.

Layton Utah Temple Will Serve Growing Population

The double towers of the Layton Utah Temple soar over the city's surrounding residential areas. The community sits along the beautiful Wasatch Front and is home to approximately 85,000 residents, making Layton the most populous city in Davis County. The temple was announced in April 2018, and construction began two years later in May 2020. Due to the winter weather, the majority of work is being carried out on the interior.

Meauring Up to the Auckland New Zealand Temple

The Auckland New Zealand Temple rises tall over South Auckland, a city that is home to the tallest freestanding structure in New Zealand and the second tallest in the Southern Hemisphere: Sky Tower. The observation and telecommunications tower was completed in 1997 and stands 1,076 feet (328 meters) tall. Cladding of the temple exterior has been stalled for a few months, but work progresses on the interior.

Steel Framing Begins for the Lindon Utah Temple

A steel structure rises from inside the concrete walls of the Lindon Utah Temple as heavy framing begins. Steel beams and columns lie in tidy stacks in staging areas around the temple, ready to be incorporated into the growing structure. Earlier this month the basement floor slabs were poured, and the first shipment of granite cladding from Italy arrived. A ground defroster has been delivered for melting snow under the portico.
