The Memphis Tennessee Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is situated in a quiet neighborhood in Bartlett, a northeast suburb of Memphis. It is the 80th operating temple of the Church and one of many smaller temples that the Church began building in the late 1990s and early 2000s to allow members easier access to these important religious buildings. In temples throughout the world, Latter-day Saints find peace in the midst of life’s daily struggles.
Vermont marble naturally veined with soft grays and golds covers the exterior. The single central spire is topped by a gold-leafed statue of the angel Moroni, a feature of many Mormon temples. Moroni is a prophet in the Book of Mormon, and his raised trumpet symbolizes a call for all people to follow the gospel of Jesus Christ. A black wrought-iron fence with a circular detail surrounds the well-kept grounds. A meetinghouse that was built before the temple was constructed shares the 6.35-acre temple site.
