[dropcap]M[/fusion_dropcap]esa is home to the very first LDS temple built in sunny Arizona. As the 7th operating temple for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this oldie, but goodie, sits on approximately 20 acres of meticulously maintained land. It was dedicated on October 23, 1927 by President Heber J. Grant and after extensive remodeling, it was re-dedicated in April 1975 by Spencer W. Kimball. The concrete structure is reinforced with 130 tons of steel and is over 113,000 square feet in size! Each year around Easter, tens of thousands attend the annual outside Easter pageant: Jesus the Christ.
The Mesa temple, along with Laie Hawaii and Cardston Alberta Temples, does not have a spire. Even though it is a little shorter, we still love it! Prior to the construction of the Mesa Temple, early saints would travel to the St. George, Utah temple to perform work. The path between Mesa and St. George become known as the “Honeymoon Trail” because of the large number of bridal parties that traveled that way.
