I Love to See the Dallas Texas Temple

Groundbreaking for the Dallas Texas Temple was held on April1, 1981. The Temple was dedicated as the 30th operating Temple on October 19-24 1984 by Gordon B Hinckley. In 1987, the Temple was closed so that a 22,749 square foot addition could be added. This addition created a larger baptistry and laundry facilities, as well as a cafeteria and an additional ordinance room. The Temple was the rededicated on March 5, 1989 by Gordon B Hinckley.

The Temple now has five ordinance rooms and four sealing rooms in it's 46,956 square feet. It sits on six acres. It is faced with light-colored marble tiles and topped with a dark gray slate roof.
