Oquirrh Mountain L.D.S. Temple, South Jordan, Utah

The Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located in South Jordan, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City. South Jordan was the first city in the world to have two temples (it also has the Jordan River Temple), followed by Provo, Utah. The temple was the fourth in the Salt Lake Valley and the 13th in the state of Utah.

 

The Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple serves approximately 83,000 Latter-day Saints living in the western Salt Lake Valley. The building is faced with light beige granite quarried and milled in China.

 

Located on an 11-acre (45,000 m2) site, the temple sits at the foot of the Oquirrh Mountains that form the western edge of the Salt Lake Valley and faces east toward a panoramic view of the Wasatch Mountains. From the site, temple visitors can see the other three temples in the valley: the Draper Utah Temple, Jordan River Utah Temple and the Salt Lake Temple.
