Bountiful Utah Temple
Name : Bountiful Utah Temple
Location : Sitting high above the city among the foothills of Bountiful's east bench, the Bountiful Utah Temple offers a captivating valley view extending to the Great Salt Lake. The temple features a breathtaking circular columned atrium that reaches from the lower parking level to the main parking level and an elegant portico at the entrance with graceful columns and arches. A cascading water feature flows on the east side of the temple underneath the Holiness to the Lord plaque.
Temple Facts : The Bountiful Utah Temple was the eighth temple built in Utah and the first built in Davis County.
The floor plan created for the Bountiful Utah Temple was adapted and used for the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple.
The Bountiful Utah Temple is one of two temples dedicated by President Howard W. Hunter during his brief time as president of the Church. (The other is the Orlando Florida Temple.)
At the groundbreaking ceremony for the Bountiful Utah Temple, some 7,500 people gathered on the site with another 2,500 viewing the proceedings by remote video. The crowd was so large, some attenders opted to sit on the steep hillside east of the site.
