The Bismarck North Dakota Temple is the 61st operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

Ground was broken for the temple on October 17, 1998, despite inclement weather. The Bismarck North Dakota Temple district covers about 200,000 square miles (5.0E+5 km2) and serves about 9,000 members. The temple sits on 1.6 acres (0.65 ha). The exterior is finished with granite veneer from Quebec. A gold-plated statue of the Angel Moroni tops the single-spire.

LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the temple in North Dakota, the only state he had not previously visited, on September 19, 1999.

The Bismarck North Dakota Temple has a total of 10,700 square feet (990 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.
