After four years of serious renovations, the St. George Utah Temple will soon open for visitors once again. A public open house will run from Friday, September 15, 2023, to Saturday, November 11, 2023. All are invited to tour the temple for free during this period.

Reservations are now open, allowing guests to choose tour times between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Groups of up to 10 are allowed per reservation. Groups of more than 10 guests will need to make multiple reservations during the same time slot. Tours are approximately 90 minutes long and guests are invited to wear comfortable clothing that reflects the sacred nature of the building. 

Tours begin with a 10-minute video explaining what you will see inside the temple and its sacred purposes. Then, you will be guided through a walking tour of the interior of the temple.

The St. George Utah Temple is the longest-operating temple of the Church and has undergone extensive renovations throughout the years.

The recent remodel began in 2019 and features an entire refurbishment of the temple block, a new annex, and other essential structural upgrades. 

“The St. George Temple represents the devotion, sacrifice, and faith of early members of the Church. This temple was built by hand in the desert as an expression of their faith,” said Emily Utt, historic sites curator with the Church History Department. “We believe the current plans to preserve, restore, and renovate this sacred place will honor those who came before while also improving the temple’s safety and function for patrons.”
