In the early morning hours of December 17, 2010, flames enveloped the Provo Tabernacle, a Provo landmark and symbol of the city’s Mormon pioneer heritage. Many people mourned the burning of this beautiful structure.To many Church members’ surprise, on October 1, 2011, 10 months after the accident, President Thomas S. Monson, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, announced that the remnants of the burnt tabernacle would be transformed into a temple. The Provo City Center Temple will be the second built in Provo, following the Provo Utah Temple, which was dedicated in 1972 and is one of the busiest temples in the world. The groundbreaking ceremony for the Provo City Center Temple took place on May 12, 2012, and was led by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.
