Temple Facts

The Kona Hawaii Temple was the sixth temple built in Polynesia and the second built in Hawaii, following the Laie Hawaii Temple (1919).

"No jot, iota, or tittle of the temple rites is otherwise than uplifting and sanctifying. In every detail the endowment ceremony contributes to covenants of morality of life, consecration of person to high ideals, devotion to truth, patriotism to nation, and allegiance to God."
—James E. Talmage
