Temples play a central role in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

They are used for the faith's highest and most sacred ordinances, such as marriage and making covenants with God to be more like Jesus Christ. Ordinances for the deceased are also performed in temples, including baptisms for the dead.

There are 150 temples in operation around the world, with another 27 either under construction or in the planning stages. Four of the temples numbered among those in operation are being renovated, bringing the number of temples in progress to 31.

New temples are typically announced at the church's general conferences, held semiannually in April and October.

For more information on LDS temples, see the church's official website.
