    Entry into the temples is allowed only to Mormons of good-standing within the Church. They must first obtain a 'temple recommend' from their local bishop, which they surrender upon entrance. Within, the temple is divided into many rooms where different religous ceremonies and theological mysteries are revealed to the worthy. For the rest of us, we can only stand outside the door and wonder.

    Very similar in design to the temples found in Logan, St George and the earlier temples of Nauvoo, Illinois and Kirtland, Ohio, the Manti Temple is the second oldest Mormon temple that has been in continuous use - only the temple in St George predates it. Salt Lake City's temple was not opened until 1893.

    Mormon temples are very similar - as are normal Mormon congregational churches - in that they resemble each other to a very large degree. They are like-designed, so has to readily recognizable to the Faithful. Temple design has changed thorugh the years, though temples built in similar eras still are recognizable as belonging to the same family.

    Using locally quarried oolitic limestone blocks, workers built this temple which overlooks the town. 11 years were required for construction. Just 3 months before his death, Brigham Young dedicated the site for the construction of the temple - April 1877.
