Temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


For members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the temple is the most sacred place of worship on earth. It is the very House of the Lord. Shortly after the Church of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth on April 6, 1830, the Lord commanded His Saints to "[o]rganize yourselves; prepare every needful thing, and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God" (Doctrine & Covenants 109:8). Members of the Church continue to follow the Lord's command to build temples to His name.
