Ogden Utah Mormon Temples

The newly renovated Ogden Utah Temple stands on 10 beautiful acres in downtown Ogden, a city of approximately 80,000. Almost 40 miles north of Salt Lake City, the city of Ogden is surrounded by Utah’s natural beauty, with the Wasatch Mountains on the east and the Great Salt Lake on the west. The Ogden Utah Temple is the 14th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mormons from northern Utah and parts of Idaho and Wyoming travel to the temple to worship God.

Before the Ogden and Provo Temples were constructed, four temples located in St. George, Logan, Manti and Salt Lake City served the Church’s population in Utah. The Ogden and Provo Temples, which are approximately 80 miles apart, were built to accommodate more Church members. The original Ogden Utah Temple was announced on August 24, 1967. Church President Joseph Fielding Smith dedicated the temple on January 18, 1972, following a public open house. The Ogden and Provo Temples were dedicated within four weeks of each other.
