The Twin Falls Idaho Temple is the 128th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Inspired particularly by the magnificent Shoshone Falls—just a 5-mile drive from the temple—the exterior design of this holy house incorporates a waterfall theme in its walls, its stained-glass windows, and its attractive landscaping including a pair of waterfall features at the temple's entrance.
