The Payson Utah Temple was the fifteenth temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints built in Utah and the third built in Utah County, following the Provo Utah Temple (1972) and the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple (1996). It is adjacent to a recently constructed meetinghouse in the Payson Utah Mount Nebo Stake. The site offers scenic mountain views and a convenient location, just a mile from the 800 South exit of I-15.

History[]

Groundbreaking[]

On October 8, 2011, several thousand gathered to the site of the Payson Utah Temple with light rainfall and temperatures in the 30s to participate in a ceremonial groundbreaking. Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve presided. In his remarks, he noted, "Standing adjacent to I-15, the major north-south artery in Utah, the Payson Utah Temple will be a dominant and visible influence on the millions who pass by here by day and by night."1
