In the verdant San Joaquin Valley of central California, the Fresno California Temple rises amidst manicured gardens and tropical trees in a residential area of northwest Fresno. Although the Fresno California Temple was the 99th temple to be announced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, its smooth construction process made it the 78th operating temple of the Church. It is the fourth temple built in California and the first built in the Central Valley. Its construction marks significant Church growth in the area extending from the valley floor to the Sequoia National Forest of the Sierra Nevada range.
The temple’s exterior finish is white Sierra granite. Its design features a single spire topped with a statue of the angel Moroni, a prophet from the Book of Mormon, and each wall is brightened by rectangular art-glass windows in groups of three. The temple design is similar to that of over 30 smaller temples built in an effort to bring temples closer to Church members around the world.
