The Provo City Center Temple will serve 77,500 members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 28 stakes.       

Local Background

The Provo City Center Temple will be the 16th temple built in Utah, the fourth in Utah County and the second in Provo, following the Provo Utah Temple (1972). When dedicated the Provo City Center Temple will be the 150th operating temple worldwide. It will stand on the site of the former Provo Tabernacle, which was tragically lost to fire.    

Temple Design

The Provo City Center Temple will recapture the historic beauty of the former Provo Tabernacle. Interior components that survived the fire — including wood moldings, newel posts and balustrades — were used as models for the production of rich woodwork and other design elements used throughout the temple. Salvaged materials such as art glass, finials and other hardware will also be on display. The temple comprises 85,084 square feet and is 150 feet high. It has a baptistry; several rooms for temple services and ordinances, such as the sealing of marriages and families; and offices for the temple presidency.
