The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has embarked on an unprecedented era of building more temples. There are currently 282 temples: 167 operational, 6 under renovation, 41 under construction, and 68 announced.
President Russell M. Nelson said “Families are to be sealed together for all eternity. A welding link is to be forged between the fathers and the children. …For these sacred purposes, holy temples now dot the earth” (“The Creation,” Ensign, May 2000).
