Visitor Information

Meridian Idaho Temple Construction
Welcome Center

Welcome Center
The welcome center provides an opportunity for the public to safely view the construction site and learn about temple construction and why The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints builds temples. The welcome center contains demonstrations of the processes that are currently being used in the construction and presents a video which shows the updated progress. Also, a viewing area is provided to watch the construction. Visitors are never allowed to pass beyond the construction site fence.

Temple Construction Missionary couples, Elder Gregory and Sister Michele Peck and Elder Keith and Sister Mary Ann Miller, operate the welcome center during the daily hours shown below.

The welcome center is located inside the northeast foyer of the new Church building located on the south end of the construction site.

During operating hours, or by reservation, a visitor parking area is available on the south side of the Church. This area is accessed by entering the SOUTH SITE ENTRANCE GATE. The number of designated visitor parking spaces is limited, so car-pooling is encouraged. See the picture below.


ATTENTION:  Construction situations may require temporary closures of the welcome center. See “EXCEPTIONS” below for emergent changes to the schedule or call 208-884-1918.

"I should not like to contemplate an existence, especially one that is going to continue forever, if I could not enjoy that existence with those whom I love. And so we build temples in the name of the Lord."
