Standing on five acres of pastoral land, the Palmyra New York Temple occupies the same ground farmed in the early 1800s by Joseph Smith, through whom The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was restored. It is the 77th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the first temple built in New York. The temple serves Church members from seven New York stakes, or groups of Latter-day Saint congregations.With 10,700 square feet, the Palmyra New York Temple has one of the smallest floor plans used for Mormon temples. It is faced with white granite from Bethel, Vermont, and its spire, topped with a golden statue of the Book of Mormon prophet Moroni, rises over the surrounding New England treetops. The temple’s design is nearly identical to dozens of temples built in the late 1990s and early 2000s as part of the Church’s effort to bring temples closer to more Church members.
