Provo City Center Temple[]


The Provo City Center Temple is the 150th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is on the same site as the former Provo Tabernacle in Provo, Utah. Completed in 2016, the temple utilizes much of the external shell of the tabernacle, all that remained of the original building after a fire in December 2010.
