The Monticello Utah Temple is the 53rd operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).


In October 1997, LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley announced the building of smaller Latter-day Saint temples throughout the world. The first of these smaller temples was to be built in Monticello, Utah. Less than one year after the announcement, the Monticello Utah Temple was dedicated on July 26, 1998.

The Monticello Utah Temple serves nearly 13,000 church members in Blanding, Moab, and Monticello, Utah areas and members from Durango, Colorado and Grand Junction, Colorado.

Located at the base of the Abajo Mountains, the temple's exterior is finished in a marble called Noah's Crème. Thirteen thousand tiles used on the temple were evaluated carefully to make sure they blended with each other for a uniform effect.[2] The Monticello Utah Temple has a total floor area of 11,225 square feet (1,042.8 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.

In 2020, the Monticello Utah Temple was closed in response to the coronavirus pandemic.[3]
