Located in Arizona’s capital and largest city, the Phoenix Arizona Temple stands on a five-acre site adorned with desert foliage. The 27,423-square-foot edifice, completed in 2014, is the 144th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the fifth in Arizona.
The temple has a contemporary square design, with a spire made up of layered sections that gradually transform from sharp to round edges. Within the temple are a baptistry, sealing rooms (where marriages are performed), instruction rooms and a celestial room, which represents eternal life with God. These rooms house beautiful wood- and stonework, stained glass and terra-cotta details. Bordering the tops of the walls are painted gold stems, a motif that is also carved into the staircase posts and much of the stonework. The temple’s many murals depict beautiful nature scenes, including desert views that reflect the surrounding environment.
