Mormon temple in Carmel will be a draw

A new Mormon temple that will begin rising in Carmel this fall will draw not only the curious, but potentially thousands of faithful pilgrims across the state.

Officials with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are likely to re-draw geographic boundaries that currently send about 42,000 Mormons to temples in Chicago and Louisville, Ky.

That means some members who live in the northern stakes (there are 11 such areas in Indiana) may get redirected away from Chicago toward Carmel, where Indiana's first Mormon temple will be built a block west of U.S. 31 on 116th Street.
