10 Pictures of the Manti Temple You Haven’t Seen (probably)
(Feature photo can be found here: Manti Temple From On High by Alan Fullmer)
One of the only “pioneer temples,” the beautiful and well-known Manti Utah Temple truly sits as a “light on a hill.” It stands majestically atop Temple Hill, which is visible throughout Sanpete County. Completed in 1888, the Manti Temple was the third operating temple of the LDS Church and serves members from all over central Utah.
Cream-colored limestone finishes the exterior of this beautiful structure. The limestone came from the very area where the temple is now located, a site previously known as the Manti Stone Quarry. The Manti Temple, much like the Logan Utah Temple 200 miles to the north, has two roof-capped towers, and its walls imitate castle parapets with their grooved tops.
Before we share the photos with you, here are some facts that you might not know about the Manti Temple:
- The Manti Temple was originally dedicated on May 21, 1888, by Lorenzo Snow. Following extensive, four-year renovations, it was later re-dedicated on June 14, 1985, by Gordon B. Hinckley
- It was the 3rd temple built in both Utah and the world.
- It was the only temple dedicated by President Lorenzo Snow.
- It is one of only seven temples where patrons physically progress through four ordinance rooms before entering the Celestial Room.
- It is one of two temples that still utilizes live acting for presentation of the endowment. (The other is the Salt Lake Temple.)
