Ground is being broken on Saturday, August 8th for yet another of Utah’s temples, and we feel this one deserves to make the cut. Look for an open house, cultural celebration, and dedication in about three years. Here’s hoping the cultural celebration is 100% Shakespeare Festival.

Now we don’t want to leave you hanging on all this temple goodness for the temples not yet under construction. We took to the awesome LDS Church Temples site (not an official Church site) and dug into the status of the temples waiting in the wings. Here are the 12 (12!!) temples announced but without a groundbreaking or final design in place, as well as the General Conference in which they were announced.
