It is located in Oakdale, Minnesota, a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota.

The site of the St. Paul Minnesota Temple is also the site of a stake center, a larger meetinghouse for the members of the LDS Church. The temple is situated on a wooded 7.5-acre (3.0 ha) site. The building itself features a single spire and is covered with a light gray granite veneer.

LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the St. Paul Minnesota Temple on January 9, 2000. The temple has a total of 10,700 square feet (990 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.

The temple received minor damage on September 10, 2008 in a fire that inspectors believe was arson.[2][3]
