The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released design plans for three temples, including two in Utah.

The photos show what the Tooele Valley Utah, Washington County Utah and Moses Lake Washington Temples will look like after they are completed.

Project leaders have filed public documents related to the temples' design in preparation for groundbreakings and construction, according to a press release.

The Tooele Valley Utah Temple was announced in April 2019 and will be located in Erda, Utah.

The three-story building, approximately 70,000 square feet, will sit northwest of the intersection of Erda Way and Highway 36.


The Washington County Utah Temple was announced in October 2018 by Church President Russell M. Nelson.

It will be built on a 14-acre site located northeast of 3000 E. 1580 S. in St. George, Utah. This will be the city's second temple.

The three-story building will reach approximately 90,000 square feet.

Utah currently has 17 operating temples. In addition to Tooele Valley and Washington County, temples have also been announced in Layton, Orem, Syracuse and Taylorsville. The one in Saratoga Springs is currently under construction, according to a press release.

The Moses Lake Washington Temple was announced in April 2019 by Church President Russell M. Nelson.

It will be built on a 17-acre site located on Yonezawa Boulevard between Division Street and Road K Ne.

The single-story building will reach 20,000 square feet and have a center spire. It will be the Church's fourth temple in the state. The others are located in Richland, Seattle and Spokane.

Latter-day Saints consider temples to be the “house of the Lord” and the most sacred places of worship on the earth.
