Provo City Center
Utah Temple

The Provo City Center Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was built from the burned out shell of the historic Provo Stake Tabernacle, a large and much loved meeting hall built in 1893. The simple Gothic revival building, with a single large hall and a horseshoe-shaped balcony, was all but lost to a fire in December 2010 but the Church leadership decided to rebuild the structure and convert it to a fully functioning Temple.

The conversion of the old shell into the new Provo City Center Temple required rebuilding those portions of the original masonry damaged by the fire, strengthening the old masonry shell, rebuilding the roof, and replacing the historic center tower which was removed in 1915. New floors have been inserted into the building shell making it a two-story building with a basement. The new underground space will accommodate additional programs.

It also includes extensive landscaping and an underground parking garage. The interior of the building was rebuilt, on the two lower levels, in a simpler Victorian Eastlake style, while the upper level reflects the higher Gothic revival style of the historic building.
