Monson on October 2, 2010, during the church's semi-annual general conference.[1][5] The temple was announced concurrently with the Hartford Connecticut, Tijuana Mexico, Urdaneta Philippines and Lisbon Portugal temples. It is the first temple constructed in Indiana.

Temple design and construction[edit]

The Indianapolis Indiana Temple is similar in design to The Gila Valley Arizona Temple, a single-level temple with an end spire and approximately 34,000[6] square feet.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held September 29, 2012,[7][8][9] with Donald L. Hallstrom presiding.[10]

A public open house was held from July 17 to August 8, 2015, excluding Sundays.[11] The temple was dedicated by Henry B. Eyring on August 23, 2015.[3]
