New Temple for Phoenix Arizona

President Monson today announced the construction of a new temple in Phoenix, the capital of Arizona. This will bring the total number of temples operating, announced, or under construction to 140. It is the third temple that the Church has announced this year to be built in Arizona. The other two temples announced earlier are going to be built in Gilbert and Gila Valley.

There are already temples in Mesa and Snowflake, Arizona. The new temple in Phoenix will be relatively close to the temple in Mesa, and the temple announced for Gilbert, but will serve the membership in the West Valley, whereas the Mesa and Gilbert temples will serve those in the East Valley. You can see the location of the five temples in Arizona on the interactive map below.
