Groundbreaking Ceremony

Groundbreaking for the Lindon Utah Temple was carried out on a chilly spring morning on Saturday, April 23, 2022. The meeting portion of the event was held in a nearby meetinghouse where Elder Kevin W. Pearson, president of the Utah Area, presided and conducted. In his dedicatory prayer, Elder Pearson said: "May the construction of Thy holy house here in Lindon continue to bless this community with peace, love and unity." Shovelfuls of dirt were turned under a tent on the temple site at 800 East and Center Street in Lindon.


Temple Design

The Lindon Utah Temple will be a three-story building of approximately 81,000 square feet with double spires of equal height.1 The main entrance to the granite-clad building will be on the north end with a baptistry entrance on the south. The ordinance spaces include four instruction rooms with 50 seats each, four sealing rooms, and two baptistries. The temple will feature art and ornamentation that celebrates the area's agrarian roots including the linden tree flower. The landscaping will include a gathering area in the northeast corner of the property where bridal parties can take photographs with a backdrop of the temple or of beautiful Mt. Timpanogos. Parking will surround the temple in a circular fashion with a black ornamental fence surrounding the entire site. A 1,500-square-foot maintenance building will also be constructed.
