Boise Idaho Mormon Temples

The Boise Idaho Temple, the 27th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is a majestic, six-spired edifice built on 4.83 acres in western Idaho. A gold-leafed statue of the angel Moroni, a Book of Mormon prophet, stands atop the east tower and overlooks the expansive lawn from 112 feet. A peaceful water feature on the grounds reflects the sky and the temple’s white granite, and the surrounding benches invite visitors of all faiths to enjoy the tranquility found there.
  
The presence of the Church grew in Boise when missionaries arrived and established the first branch, or small congregation, in February 1903. Boise’s first stake — a large congregation similar to a Catholic diocese — was organized in 1913. The first temple in Idaho was completed in 1945, near the Snake River in Idaho Falls, and the Boise Idaho Temple was announced 37 years later, on March 31, 1982.
