The groundbreaking ceremony for the Yorba Linda California Temple is scheduled for June 18, 2022, but the temple will look different than originally anticipated.
The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has approved the revised design after changes were made due to permitting and zoning requirements. The new design mainly affects the spire, which has been lowered and moved from the center of the building to just above the entrance.
Both designs pay homage to the Spanish missions built throughout California in the 1700s and 1800s.

The groundbreaking date was announced in March 2022, and the initial artist’s rendering was released in September 2021. Its location was announced in July 2021.
