Plans to construct the temple were announced 14 August 1967, Church leaders broke ground 15 September 1969, and Joseph Fielding Smith, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1970 to 1972, dedicated the Provo Utah Temple 9 February 1972. The temple serves Latter-day Saints in central and eastern Utah. A second temple in Provo, the Provo City Center Temple, is under construction.

The 130,825-square-foot temple’s exterior is white cast stone, gold anodized aluminum grills, bronze glass panels and single spire finished in gold and anodized aluminum.

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