Plans to construct the temple were announced 2 April 1980, Church leaders broke ground 7 March 1981, and Gordon B. Hinckley, then a counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, dedicated the Atlanta Georgia Temple 1 June 1983. After an extensive remodel of the temple to update all utilities and to provide better access for disabled visitors and patrons, as well as landscaping and structural improvements, Thomas S. Monson, president of the Church, rededicated the temple 1 May 2011. The temple serves Latter-day Saints in Georgia and in parts of Alabama, Tennessee and North Carolina.

The exterior of the 34,500-square-foot temple is pre-cast stone walls.

Currently, there are over 50 temples in various stages of construction, renovation or have been announced throughout the world.
