Temple History

During the opening session of the October 2005 General Conference, President Gordon B. Hinckley announced the construction of a temple in South Jordan, Utah, later named the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple. With this announcement, President Hinckley indicated that another temple site had been acquired in the southwest part of the Salt Lake Valley, which would be announced later once membership growth in the valley required it.1

1. Nicole Warburton, "2 new Utah temples: Sites are S. Jordan, southwest S.L. Valley," Church News 1 Oct. 2005: 1.

"Finally it may be said that the temple endowment is not secret. All who meet the requirements for entrance to the temple may enjoy it. "
—John A. Widtsoe
