Ogden, Utah

Plans to construct the temple were announced 24 August 1967, Church leaders broke ground 8 September 1969, and Joseph Fielding Smith, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1970 to 1972, dedicated the Ogden Utah Temple 18 January 1972. The temple serves Latter-day Saints in northeastern Utah and southwestern Wyoming.

Extensive renovation of the temple is complete and was rededicated by Church President Thomas S. Monson on Sunday, 21 September 2014. As part of the renovation, the temple’s entire exterior was reshaped with new stone and art glass. The temple’s main entrance was moved from the west side to the east side, where it faces Washington Boulevard, one of the city’s main streets. The renovation of the temple also includes reconfigured rooms and new energy-saving electrical, heating, and plumbing systems. Other notable improvements include adding underground parking, new landscaping of the temple block, and the addition of a major water feature.

Currently, there are more than 20 temples in various stages of construction or have been announced throughout the world.
