Cardston Alberta Mormon Temples

​On a small rise overlooking fertile plains, the Cardston Alberta Temple stands in the shadow of the majestic Canadian Rockies. Dedicated in 1923, it is the sixth operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the first temple built in Canada and the first temple outside the United States. It serves patrons living in Alberta and British Columbia in Canada and Montana in the United States.
 
The temple’s monolithic appearance conveys a sense of strength and permanence. Each white granite block making up the original exterior was quarried in British Columbia and hand-hewn on site. With 29,471 square feet, the Cardston Alberta Temple was comparatively small at the time of its dedication, but in 1962 the Church added 52,229 square feet, bringing the total square footage to 81,700. The exterior of the addition is made of precast artificial granite, which was created to match the original stone.
