The Rexburg Idaho Temple is the Church's 125th Operating Temple. Located on 10 acres adjacent to the campus of BYU-Idaho, it is the third Temple in the state of Idaho.

This Temple was announced on December 12, 2003. Dedication was scheduled for February 3, 2008, but that was delayed due to the death of Gordon B Hinckley. It was dedicated on February 10, 2008 by Thomas S Monson.

It has four ordinance rooms and five sealing rooms in its 57,504 square feet. The exterior consists of precast concrete panels with white quartz rock finish.
