LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Demolishing the South Visitors' Center on Temple Square

Wrecking equipment is bringing down the South Visitors' Center and portions of the south wall along Temple Square today. Removal of the building and wall will provide access to excavation crews who will dig along the foundation of the Salt Lake Temple. Trees, statues, and monuments were moved from the south side of the temple last week, and most of landscaping is gone. The temple is being decommissioned by teams who are moving out furniture and abating hazardous materials.

Official Rendering Released for the Bengaluru India Temple

The official rendering was released and location announced today for India's first temple, the Bengaluru India Temple, which will be constructed on the 1.62-acre site where India's Church offices and the stake center for the Bengaluru India Stake are located in the Whitefield neighborhood. The existing buildings will be replaced with the 38,670-square-foot temple, a two-level meetinghouse, administrative offices, a distribution center, and a patron housing facility. Project leaders will soon submit preliminary plans and applications to the local government to begin the process of approval. No date has been set yet for the groundbreaking.

Spire Attached to Winnipeg Manitoba Temple Tower

The gold-colored spire of the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple, which has stood in a staging area near the temple for the past few months, was installed today in its permanent location atop the tower over the main entrance. Subcontractors continue to work on the interior and exterior of the building through the challenging winter months.
