Temple Open House

 March 24, 2018

  The temple provides purpose for our lives.  It brings peace to our souls - not the peace provided by men but the peace promised by the Son of God when He said ‘Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  -Thomas S. Monson

The youth (and leaders) of the Jordan River temple district are invited to a youth only open house held for the Jordan River Utah Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The open house includes a video and walk through tour of the temple.


Youth are invited to come and are encouraged to invite their friends to join them at the temple open house for this special day.  Each ward has an assigned time slot and an assigned parking lot.  Those assignments can be viewed below by clicking on the Open House Sessions button.  NOTE: This is a non-ticketed event.  Tickets will NOT be issued.

Who is Invited:

Youth, Friends of Youth, Youth Leaders

What to Expect:

  • Guests assigned to the offsite parking lot (M Lot) will be shuttled to and from the temple.

  • Open house tours will begin in the meetinghouse adjacent to the temple where a short video will be presented. The video provides an overview of temples and what guests will see during the tour. Following the video, guests begin their walking tour of the temple. After the tour, guests are invited to visit the reception area to enjoy various displays about the temple and ask questions. The tour will last approximately one hour. Shuttled guests will return to the parking lot via buses located immediately south of the reception tent.

  • Church dress and comfortable shoes are suggested.   

  • Photography or recording of any kind is not permitted within the temple.  Photos are encouraged outside on temple grounds.  


  • The M lot is 1600 West 9800 South, South Jordan, UT 84095 (a shuttle will take guests to and from the meetinghouse).

  • The JR lot is the parking lot at the Jordan River Temple.  We ask guests to enter this lot from 10200 South at Redwood Road. 

  • Please park in the assigned parking lot you have been given.

  • The assigned time indicates when the session opening video begins so guests should plan to arrive in the designated parking lot with enough time to get to the meetinghouse adjacent to the temple.

  • Please carpool to help reduce overall traffic congestion.

Stake Responsibilities:

  • None


Ward Responsibilities:

  • Ward youth leaders will need to provide transportation to the temple and have the youth watch the video above in the car on the way.  Church dress encouraged.
