The Tucson Arizona Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) in Catalina Foothills, Arizona, just north of Tucson. The intent to construct the temple was announced by church president Thomas S. Monson on October 6, 2012, during the church's semi-annual general conference. The temple is 38,216 square feet (3,550.4 m2) and is located on a 7.4-acre (3.0 ha) site.For Tucson Arizona Temple and beyond, use our Tucson trip itinerary planner to get the most from your Tucson vacation.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf presided at a groundbreaking to signify beginning of construction on October 17, 2015. A public open house was held from June 3 to 24, 2017, excluding Sundays. The temple was dedicated on August 13, 2017, by Uchtdorf.
The Tucson Arizona Temple was designed in the art deco style, with Sonoran Desert motifs. The temple features a dome inspired by the 1920s-era Pima County Courthouse, and is notably smaller in height than many other temples due to local zoning ordinances.
In 2020, like all the church's other temples, the Tucson Arizona Temple was closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
