Get a sneak peek inside the new Taylorsville Utah Temple

The public open house for the Taylorsville Utah Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints begins this week in Taylorsville, Utah.

Media attended a news conference and tour of the house of the Lord on Tuesday, April 9, 2024. Those participating in the event included Elder Kevin W. Pearson, Utah Area President; Elder James R. Rasband, assistant executive director, Temple Department; and Sister Tracy Y. Browning, Second Counselor in the Primary General Presidency.

Invited guests will tour the temple through Friday, April 12. The public open house will run from Saturday, April 13, through Saturday, May 18, 2024, excluding Sundays.

Admission to the public open house is free. Online reservations are recommended.

“As the Church grows, more temples will be built so that more families can have access to that greatest of all blessings, that of eternal life,” said President Nelson, as he announced the Taylorsville temple in the October 2019 general conference. “We regard a temple as the most sacred structure in the Church. Whenever plans are announced to construct a new temple, it becomes an important part of our history.”

The Taylorsville Utah Temple will be dedicated by Elder Gerrit W. Gong of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in two sessions (10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. MDT) on Sunday, June 2, 2024. The dedicatory sessions will be broadcast to all congregations in the Taylorsville Utah Temple district.
