Updated July 8, 2024

Latter-day Saints worship in temples for several reasons: to make sacred promises with God, to learn more about God’s plan for His children and the central role of Jesus Christ in that plan, and to unite families for eternity.

Visitors of all ages are invited to a free public open house held for most new or renovated temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The open house includes a video and a walk-through tour of the temple. After the temple is formally dedicated, entrance is reserved for faithful members of the Church.

The Church now has 350 total temples — dedicated, under construction or announced and in planning. President Russell M. Nelson announced 15 new temple locations at general conference on April 7. The 350 include:

  • 195 temples dedicated.
  • 7 temples scheduled for dedication.
  • 45 temples under construction.
  • 4 temples scheduled for groundbreaking.
  • 100 temples announced and in planning and design.

The most recent temple dedication was the Layton Utah Temple on June 16.
