Mesa Arizona Temple[]

Mesa2019b

The Mesa Arizona Temple was one of the first three temples announced in 1919 by the church to be built outside of Utah. Somewhat similar in design to the Cardston Alberta Temple and Laie Hawaii Temple. During Christmas there is a light display and a nativity scene. During late March to early April, the temple hosts the Mesa Arizona Easter Pageant Jesus the Christ, which attracts approximately 150,000 people annually and is the "largest annual outdoor Easter pageant in the world."
