Payson Utah Mormon Temples

Described as a “lighted beacon,” symbolic of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Payson Utah Temple rests on 15 acres of what was once a golden wheat field. Today, local Church members feel great joy in attending this magnificent house of worship. The Payson Temple is the 146th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the 15th temple in Utah.

The manicured grounds of the Payson Utah Temple are highlighted by a lovely water feature and scenic views of the surrounding mountains and countryside. Standing at 96,630 square feet, it is one of the largest temples to be constructed in recent history. Its contemporary design was inspired by elements of classical architecture, and it features breathtaking art glass by artist Tom Holdman of Lehi, Utah, who has contributed to numerous other temples of the Church. Rooms within the temple’s interior include a baptistry; instruction rooms; sealing rooms, where marriages are solemnized; and a celestial room, which represents the glory of eternal life with God. Mormons attend the temple to participate in the highest sacraments of their faith and to seek communion with God.
