The Portland Oregon Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) located on 7 acres (28,000 m2) near the intersection of Highway 217 and I-5 in Lake Oswego, Oregon. The temple's architecture features six white spires and a white marble exterior accented with green marble trim and topped with a green slate roof. It is 80,500 square feet (7,480 m2) in area, with four ordinance rooms and fourteen sealing rooms.

The temple, the 42nd operating LDS temple, serves members of stakes in the Portland metropolitan area, other parts of Oregon and two cities in Washington.

In 2012, the church added a visitors' center which is open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. It was formally dedicated by Gary E. Stevenson in June 2013.[1]
