Exterior Renderings Released for Four Future US Temples
This morning, beautiful artist renderings of four future temples were released to the public – the Yorba Linda California Temple, the Grand Junction Colorado Temple, the Burley Idaho Temple, and the Elko Nevada Temple. We’re so excited about the designs of these temples! As you’ll see below, three out of the four temples have very similar designs, only changing a bit in exterior architecture and style. These similar designs are allowing the temples to be built much more quickly, and it’s great to see the work on them progress at such a rapid rate. Click the images below to view them larger.
All four of these temples were among the 20 that were announced by President Nelson during the April 2021 General Conference. No official groundbreaking dates for any of these temples has been announced yet, but the release of the renderings are a sign that project leaders are preparing to file additional public documents relating to plans for the temple’s design. And that means that construction will hopefully begin on each of these temples in the very near future!
As is always the case with these early announcements, the detailed design plans for the temple are still being developed. Interior renderings, as well as more information, will be made public at a later time.
