Announcement

The First Presidency of the Mormon Church announced on April 21, 2001 that a temple would be built in the Sacramento, California area.

Groundbreaking

On August 22, 2004 a site dedication and groundbreaking ceremony were held. Mormon Church President Gordon B. Hinckley presided at the ceremony and gave the site dedication prayer. Other prominent Church members from the area also attended the groundbreaking and site dedication, including Congressman John Doolittle and Mayor Rockholm.

Open House

An open house took place July 29-August 26, 2006, to allow members of the Church as well as non-members in the community the opportunity to see the inside of the Mormon temple.

Cultural Celebration

The night before the dedication, a cultural celebration was performed at ARCO Arena.[1]

Plans for building the temple were met with little resistance by the surrounding communities and government bodies. Many were glad for the building of the temple in the area because it would improve the land, and bring visitors and money into the area. There was some concern about the height of the temple spire and the Church agreed to lower it twenty feet.

The site for the temple includes 46 acres and overlooks the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The temple grounds are designed to fit in with the surrounding landscape.

The temple has a total of 19,500 square feet (1,810 m2), two ordinance rooms, and four sealing rooms.
