Rexburg Idaho Mormon Temples

In the rural college town of Rexburg, Idaho, the Rexburg Idaho Temple occupies a hill above Brigham Young University–Idaho. The temple belongs to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and is the 125th operating temple worldwide and the third to be completed in Idaho. A number of the patrons of the Rexburg Idaho Temple come from the university’s student body and from Mormon congregations in the Upper Snake River Valley in eastern Idaho.

On top of the temple spire, a gold-leafed statute of the angel Moroni, a prophet from the Book of Mormon, raises his trumpet, bringing the height of the temple to nearly 169 feet. Seven hundred art-glass windowpanes decorate the temple, and a particularly stunning set faces east above the temple entrance. The temple entrance also has the words “Holiness to the Lord, the House of the Lord” carved just above it. A quartz finish makes the temple’s 637 precast concrete panels glitter in the sunlight. The quartz was mined in the state of Washington and sandblasted after it was added to the concrete.
