Nauvoo Temple

 

The Nauvoo Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was originally built between 1841-45 but was abandoned as mobs drove the Mormons out of Illinois in 1846. Damaged first by fire and then a tornado, the structure was no longer standing by 1853. The LDS Church eventually reacquired the land in 1962 and rebuilt the temple on the original footprint between 2000-2002. The exterior of the current temple is nearly a replica of the original structure. 

While this temple is not available for public tours, individuals are welcome to stroll the grounds. Visit mormontemples.org to learn more about the Nauvoo temple.


Latter-day Saints arriving to perform service in the temple may                           to consult the schedule.  A waiting area for family and friends is available in the Temple Arrival Center just north of the temple.
