TOOELE, Utah — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released renderings of what the interior of the Tooele Valley Temple will look like after it is completed.

The Temple to be built in Erda was announced by church President Russell M. Nelson in April, 2019, and is expected to be three stories tall and 70,000 square feet.

The church says that the design of the temple will feature a cast stone exterior with copper shingles that will be done in a pioneer-style as well as including cliff rose and silvery lupine flowers in the interior design.

Director of temple design Bill Williams says he and other architects drew from the details of other nearby historic tabernacles as they planned for this temple

“These beautiful renderings depict the care and attention to detail that will go into the construction of this house of the Lord,” said Brent Roberts, managing director of the Church’s Special Projects Department. “The temple is our holiest place of worship. We believe this will be a place where Latter-day Saints in the Tooele Valley and beyond can go to obtain peace and divine direction in their lives.”

Utah currently has 17 operating temples. In addition to Tooele Valley, temples have also been announced in Layton, Orem, Syracuse, Taylorsville, and Washington County. A temple in Saratoga Springs is currently under construction.

A groundbreaking date for the temple has not yet been released.
