is one of the websites of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was created to help people better understand the purpose of LDS Temples.

Mormon temples are the holiest places of worship on earth for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Within these sacred walls, participants commit to live ethical and morally upright lives and to be faithful to their spouse and family.

Latter-day saints consider temples to be “The House of The Lord,” and take great care in their construction and maintenance. They are designed to fit harmoniously into the communities they call home and include beautifully kept gardens and green spaces that are open to the public.

Temples are distinct from Mormon chapels. Sunday worship services are held in community meetinghouses and are open to everyone. Temple services are attended Tuesday through Saturday at scheduled intervals by small groups of church members.

Mormons believe that through the grace of Jesus Christ all humanity can return to live with God. Religious observances such as baptism are an important part of accepting the divine gift heavenly Father wants all of his children to receive.

This website about LDS temples also provides a section of commonly questions, such as the following:

  • How are temples used?
  • What is it like inside the temple?
  • Will members of the public ever see inside of the temple?
  • What is the difference between a temple and an ordinary church building?

The website also provides an interactive tour that lets you explore the various rooms inside a temple.
