West of the Sandia mountain range stands the Albuquerque New Mexico Temple, the first temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be built in New Mexico. The 34,235-square-foot temple sits on 8.5 acres, landscaped with native desert plants. From the grounds, visitors have a stunning view of the surrounding valley and mountains.
The temple’s exterior includes panels of precast concrete tinted desert rose, which appears to be different colors, including pink or tan, based on the time of day. The rose concrete contrasts with the foundation, which is lined with Texas pearl granite and is visible on the sides and back of the temple. A single spire formed by three irregular stacked blocks rises heavenward and is topped with a gold-leafed statue of the angel Moroni.
