Draper Utah Mormon Temples

At the southern end of the Salt Lake Valley, the Draper Utah Temple overlooks a gorgeous panorama from just below a ridge of the Wasatch Mountains. This majestic white edifice is the 129th temple belonging to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and it is the 12th Mormon temple to be built in the state of Utah. Latter-day Saints living in the southeastern part of the Salt Lake Valley attend the temple to find peace and worship God.

The vertical lines of the tiered structure draw the eye heavenward. The white Chinese granite that covers the exterior vividly stands out against the nearby mountainous backdrop and the expansive Utah sky. From the ground to the top of the statue of the angel Moroni, the temple stands nearly 170 feet tall. The 12-acre temple grounds are replete with trees and flowers. White stone walkways surround the building, encouraging visitors to enjoy the landscaping and admire the temple’s beauty. A meetinghouse and an adjacent parking lot are also present on the temple grounds.
