At the southern end of the Salt Lake Valley, the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple provides a view of the valley and Wasatch Mountains beyond. This edifice is the 130th temple built by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the 13th constructed in Utah. Church members in the western part of the valley come to the temple to renew their commitments to living Christlike lives.The Goshute word “Oquirrh” means “shining mountains.” Like the Oquirrh Mountains to the west of the temple, which shine as the sun rises on the valley, the Uinta gold granite of the temple exterior radiates light. Breathtaking art-glass windows sparkle on the temple exterior, and they contain stars and circles, encouraging patrons to lift their thoughts heavenward. The density of the star pattern increases as the windows ascend. A gold-leafed statue of angel Moroni, a prophet from the Book of Mormon, crowns the temple spire, which rises 183 feet into the air.
