The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released an artist’s rendering of the Meridian Idaho Temple on May 14.

President Thomas S. Monson announced the Meridian Idaho Temple April 2, 2011, at the 181st Annual General Conference of the church. The temple’s completion date is not known at this time.

Some commenters on Facebook note the Meridian Idaho Temple’s likeness to the Cardston Alberta Temple.
