9 Pictures of the Las Vegas Temple You Haven’t Seen Yet
(Feature photo can be found here: Las Vegas Temple – Summer Glow by Rory Wallwork)
Sitting on the eastern edge of the city, far from the lights and glitz of the Las Vegas Strip, the Las Vegas Nevada Temple is a spiritual beacon of the city. It sits on over 10 acres of land at the base of Frenchman Mountain. The exterior is a white finish of pre-cast stone walls with a copper roof. The six spires of the temple echo the nearby peaks of Sunrise Mountain. The temple is surrounded by flourishing flowers and trees throughout the grounds.
Because it was one of the earlier temples built and dedicated in our time, once the temple was announced Latter-day Saints in the temple district were asked to contribute toward its construction. They enthusiastically answered the call by raising $11 million — 428 percent of what was requested of them!
Before we share these beautiful temple pictures with you, here are a few facts about the Las Vegas Temple that you may not know:
- It was dedicated on December 18, 1989 by Gordon B. Hinckley.
- It was the first temple built in Nevada, with the Reno Temple having since been built.
- During the 23-day public open house, 297,480 visitors toured the temple.
- Dedicated in eleven sessions just before the Christmas holiday, the new temple was a fitting gift for the Savior of the World.
