Message from the designer: The Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple is the 49th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). The temple is located in American Fork, Utah and is the second temple built in Utah County and the ninth in Utah. he temple was announced by Gordon B. Hinckley, then a counselor in the church’s First Presidency, in general conference on October 3, 1992. The exact location, on land in American Fork previously used as a church welfare farm, was announced at the following conference six months later. The Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple overlooks the cities of American Fork, Cedar Hills, Highland and Alpine as well as nearby Utah Lake. Mount Timpanogos, a majestic 11,750-foot peak, and the Wasatch Mountains serve as a backdrop.
Ground was broken for the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple a year after its announcement. Approximately 12,000 people gathered on the temple site for the ceremony. During the services, the location of the Madrid Spain Temple was announced.
Twenty-thousand people attended a ceremony as the angel Moroni statue was lifted to its resting place on the 190-foot (58 m) spire of the temple in July 1995. Once the statue was in place, the throngs of visitors broke into applause and then spontaneously began to sing The Spirit of God.
A total of 679,217 people toured the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple during the six weeks (August 10 – September 21, 1996) of its public open house. More than 800 children’s choirs – made up from nearly every ward and branch in the temple district – performed near the front entrance to the temple at least once during the open house.
