The Tucson Arizona Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was open to the public for three weeks this past June. Approximately 100,000 visitors were able to tour the 38, 216-square foot facility, which will serve members of the Church in the southern region of Arizona.

The Temple will be dedicated in three sessions on Sunday, August 13, 2017. Previous to the dedication, on Saturday, August 12, a cultural celebration will be held, in which over 2,500 youth from the area will commemorate the heritage of the region through narration, song, and dance.

Located at 7281 N. Skyline Drive, the Tucson Arizona Temple is the sixth temple built in Arizona, following the Mesa Arizona Temple (1927), the Snowflake Arizona Temple (2002), the Gila Valley Arizona Temple (2010), the Gilbert Arizona Temple (2014), and the Phoenix Arizona Temple (2014).
