Paris, Rome and Provo: 28 Mormon temples in progress (66 items)
During the most recent general conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Thomas S. Monson said that while church leaders are constantly assessing members' needs, no new temples would be announced at that time. Instead, efforts are being focused on completing the 28 temples that are in the planning and construction phases.
Here we've compiled information about each of these temples, including construction photographs and milestones.
When these 28 temples are completed, the LDS Church will have 170 operating temples.
