  Wasatch Front, Utah area temples

Temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are buildings dedicated to be a House of the Lord, and they are considered by church members to be the most sacred structures on earth. Upon completion, temples are usually open to the public for a short period of time (an "Open House"). During the Open House, the church conducts tours of the temple with missionaries and members from the local area serving as tour guides, and all rooms of the temple are open to the public. The temple is then dedicated as a "House of the Lord," after which only members in good standing are permitted entrance; temples are not churches but are places of worship. There are 159 operating temples (which includes 9 previously dedicated, but closed for renovation), 11 under construction, and 19 announced (not yet under construction).

The Nauvoo Illinois Temple, built in 2002 and based on the original Nauvoo Temple that was built in 1846 and destroyed in 1848

Within temples, members of the church make covenants, receive instructions, and perform sacred ordinances, such as: baptism for the dead, washing and anointing (or "initiatory" ordinances), the "endowment," and eternal marriage sealings. Ordinances are a vital part of the theology of the church, which teaches that they were practiced by the Lord's covenant people in all dispensations. Additionally, members consider the temple a place to commune with God, seek His aid, understand His will, and receive personal revelation.

HistoryEdit

 
The Mesa Arizona Temple, one of three patterned after the Temple of Solomon

In 1832, shortly after the formation of the church, Joseph Smith said that the Lord desired the saints build a temple;[1] and they completed the Kirtland Temple in 1836. Initially, the church constructed temples in areas where there were large concentrations of members: Utah, Idaho, Arizona, Hawaii (all in the USA), and Alberta (Canada). In the mid 20th century, because of the importance of temples in the theology, the church tried to balance density with the travel requirements attending the temple imposed upon members. Thus, temples were built in Europe (namely, Switzerland dedicated in 1955 and England dedicated in 1958); the Pacific Islands (namely, New Zealand dedicated in 1958); and Washington, D.C. (dedicated in 1974, the first American temple East of Utah since Nauvoo in 1846). All were dedicated at a time when membership in the region alone might not have justified the effort.

In the 1980s, Spencer W. Kimball directed the church to build smaller temples with similar designs[2] allowing temples to be built where there were fewer members. As a result, the first temples in South America (Brazil dedicated in 1978); Asia (Japan dedicated in 1980); and Mexico (Mexico City dedicated in 1983) were built and the number of temples doubled from 15 to 36.

 
The Columbus Ohio Temple, an example of smaller temples built under Hinckley's direction

Church president Gordon B. Hinckley (1910–2008) also accelerated the construction of temples through the use of an even smaller standardized base design.[3] In 1998, when there were 51 temples, Hinckley set a goal to have 100 temples in place before the end of 2000.[4] Between the brief building period from 1998 to 2001, 38 of these standardized temples were constructed and dedicated, meeting Hinckley's goal by having 102 dedicated temples before 2000 closed. During Hinckley's service as president, the number of temples more than doubled from 47 to 124.[5]

  2. ^ Before this time, all but the Swiss Temple were at least 45,000 square feet (4,200 m2), and the average size of the first 20 temples was 103,000 square feet (9,600 m2). The new temples varied in size but were generally less than 25,000 square feet (2,300 m2). By comparison, the Nauvoo Temple, built in the 1840s, was 54,000 square feet (5,000 m2). Some of these temples have been remodeled since the original construction to provide additional rooms,

"Some Thoughts on Temples, Retention of Converts, and Missionary Service". 167th Semiannual General Conference, October 1997. Retrieved October 30, 2006. ). The base design is about 10,700 square feet (990 m2), and temples built from the design are generally between 10,000 and 18,000 square feet (930 and 1,700 m2). These temples generally do not include a large laundry facility, do not provide members with the ability to rent temple clothing, nor provide a cafeteria for members (Almanac, 2000).
