The Las Vegas Nevada Temple is the 43rd operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).
Located in the Sunrise Manor CDP near Las Vegas, Nevada, the temple sits on 10.3acre of land at the base of Frenchman Mountain. A groundbreaking ceremony and site dedication for the temple were held in November 1985. Gordon B. Hinckley, then a counselor in the church's First Presidency, presided and gave the dedication prayer. Construction began soon after the ceremony.
After construction was completed, the temple was open to the public for tours between November 16 and December 9, 1989. Almost 300,000 toured the temple and its grounds during these three weeks. The temple has six spires, the highest of which is 119ft. At the top of this tower stands a ten-foot statue of the angel Moroni. The exterior is a white finish of pre-cast stone walls with a copper roof. The temple has 192 rooms, which includes four ordinance rooms, a Celestial room, six sealing rooms, a baptismal font, and other facilities to meet the needs of the purposes of the temple.
Hinckley dedicated the Las Vegas Nevada Temple in sessions held December 16–18, 1989. Eleven sessions were held and more than 30,000 Latter-day Saints attended the dedicatory services.

  • I love visiting the temples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This location is a beautiful building, both inside and out. However I found the entrance and building lighting and in the parking lot to be dim at night. Wanted to take some pictures after going with my nephew for his first time and all the photos turned out dingy.
  • I visited here for my cousin's wedding. It was lovely on the outside and even nicer on the inside. The waiting room was special and peaceful. And the welcoming people were very kind. I would definitely come back next time I'm in town.
