Meridian Idaho Temple Location Announced!
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the site for its new Meridian Temple.
The new temple will be built at 7345 North Linder Road, a few blocks north of the intersection of North Linder Road and Chinden Boulevard.
The Meridian Temple is the fifth in Idaho, with other temples in Boise, Twin Falls, Idaho Falls and Rexburg.
“We feel this new temple will be a great asset not only to members of the Church but also to the people of the surrounding community, who will benefit from the peace and beauty a temple brings.” said Craig Rasmussen, Idaho spokesman for the Church. “Temples are where members participate in the highest sacraments of our faith—where we make and renew promises to God and to our families.”
Once construction of the new temple begins it is expected to take approximately two years to complete.
