Bountiful, Utah LDS Temple

Bountiful Utah Temple 

Announcement:  April 6, 1991 by Ezra Taft Benson 
Decication:  January 8-14, 1995 by Howard W. Hunter 
47th operating Temple 

The Bountiful Temple sits high above the city among the foothill's of Bountiful's east bench.  The Temple offers a captivating valley view extending to the Great Salt Lake.  

8th Temple built in Utah, 1st in Davis County.  

The Bountiful Utah Temple is one of two temples dedicated by Pres. Howard W. Hunter in his brief time as President of the Church.  (The other was the Orlando, Florida Temple) 

The floor plan created for the Bountiful Temple was also adapted and used for the Mt. Timpanogos Temple as well. 

At the 28 dedicatory sessions of the Bountiful Utah Temple, 201,655 members were in attendance—the largest number of attenders at a temple dedication in the history of the Church.

We visited this Temple on a Sunday after church and apparently they lock the gate on Sunday's.  Lance & Tallie were little enough to fit through the gate, but Pres was stuck on the outside looking in! 

Beautiful Temple grounds.
