Vernal Utah Temple
170 South 400 West
Plans to construct the temple were announced 13 February 1994, Church leaders broke ground 13 May 1995, and Gordon B. Hinckley, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1995 to 2008, dedicated the Vernal Utah Temple 2 November 1997. The temple serves Latter-day Saints in parts of eastern central Utah, Colorado and Wyoming.
The 33,400-square-foot temple’s exterior is face brick.
The Vernal Temple was converted into the tenth temple in Utah from the Uintah Stake Tabernacle, which was constructed in 1907.
Currently, there are more than 20 temples in various stages of construction or have been announced throughout the world.
