It was number 19, built in Utah, and the sixth Temple in Utah County.

The Temple

A 20,000 sqft meeting house was also built during the Temple’s construction.

This was built to accommodate the local members, Orem. Once it was finished, the Provo Temple was closed. They are rebuilding that Temple.

My Thoughts

This is nicely located on the side of the freeway, and it is stunning when it is lit up at night. The grounds are nicely laid out and offer beautiful views of the surrounding area.
