Provo Utah Mormon Temples

Perched on the foothills of Provo’s east bench, the Provo Utah Temple overlooks Utah Valley. The rugged mouth of Rock Canyon provides a beautiful backdrop for this house of worship. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from the eastern and central parts of the state of Utah attend the temple, the 15th constructed by the Church.

The elliptical building is 130,825 square feet and sits on 17 acres. Utah sunsets reflect off its bronze glass panels, and its white cast-stone walls look radiant in the sun. A single spire rises from the center of the temple roof. On top of the spire, a gold-leafed statue of angel Moroni, a prophet from the Book of Mormon, holds a raised trumpet. The statue symbolizes the message of the restored gospel proclaimed to the world, and statues of the angel Moroni appear on many Mormon temples.
