New temple coming to Las Vegas: Here’s where it will be built


The Lone Mountain Nevada Temple will be built on a 19.8-acre site located southwest of Hickman Avenue between North Grand Canyon Drive and Tee Pee Lane in Las Vegas, Nevada. Plans call for a three-story temple of approximately 87,000 square feet. This will be the city’s second temple. The Las Vegas Nevada Temple has been in operation since December 1989.

Church President Russell M. Nelson announced the Lone Mountain Nevada Temple in October 2022. The other two temples in Nevada are the Reno Nevada Temple and the Elko Nevada Temple, which is currently under construction.

Nevada, a state in the Western U.S., is home to more than 182,000 Latter-day Saints in over 360 congregations. The first Latter-day Saints in Nevada arrived in 1852.

Detailed design plans for this temple are still being developed. Further information, including exterior renderings, will be made public later. Groundbreaking dates will be announced in the future.
