On June 24, 2001 the Mormon Church announced it would be building a temple in San Antonio, Texas, making it the state’s fourth. Work quickly began to find a site for the temple. The need for a temple in the San Antonio area had become great because of the rapid growth of the Church. In ten years the number of Mormon members in the area grew from 9,000 to 12,000. Until the San Antonio Temple was announced members in the area had to travel to Houston a three and a half hour trip one way; or Dallas a four and a half hour trip one way.
On March 29, 2003 a site dedication and groundbreaking ceremony was held and construction began.
An open house was held April 16 through May 7, 2005 to allow people to see the inside of a Mormon temple. During these three weeks, more than 50,000 people took a tour through the newly finished temple.
The night before the dedication a celebration was held at the Alamodome. More than 20,000 people attended to watch a show featuring over 4,000 singers and dancers, horses, fireworks, and presentations of Texas history, family values, and Mormon beliefs. President Hinckley also spoke to those in attendance about the temple.
President Gordon B. Hinckley officially dedicated the San Antonio Temple for use on May 22, 2005.

The inside of the temple is beautifully furnished with African Cherrywood, stained glass windows, paintings of Jesus’ life and a mural by San Antonio artist Keith Bonds.
The San Antonio Mormon temple serves about 45,250 members from Waco to Brownsville, Texas. It has a total of 16,800 square feet, two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.
