Manti Utah Temple is the third temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints built west of the Mississippi River, after the pioneers westward trek. It is the biggest landmark of the Sanpete Valley. The temple was completed in 1888, and a private dedication was held on May 17, 1888, with a prayer written by Wilford Woodruff (1807-1898).
