The Louisville Kentucky Temple stands on a wooded hillside 12 miles northeast of Kentucky’s biggest city. Located in the suburb of Crestwood, once listed as one of CNN’s 100 best U.S. cities to live in, this graceful marble house of the Lord serves Church congregations from Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia. It is the 76th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the first to be built in Kentucky.
Sitting on a one-acre site, the Louisville Kentucky Temple has a relatively small floor plan, consisting of only 10,700 square feet. The temple does not include all of the features found in larger temples, such as a cafeteria or waiting rooms, but it houses all of the important temple functions within its instruction rooms, sealing rooms (where weddings take place), a celestial room representing heaven on earth and a baptistry. Its simplified design is almost identical to several other small temples that were built during the same time in an effort to bring temples closer to more Church members. By streamlining the design, the Church limited construction and operation expenses, thus allowing more patrons to participate in temple worship.
