President Nelson of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced its plans to build a second temple in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It will be located in the Lone Mountain which is on the northwest side of the Las Vegas metropolitan area.

Nearly 6% of Nevada’s population are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

There are about 180,000 Latter-day Saints in more than 360 congregations in this U.S. state. The Lone Mountain Nevada Temple will be the state’s fourth temple. The Las Vegas Nevada Temple was dedicated in 1989, and the Reno Nevada Temple was dedicated in 2000.

Ground was broken for the Elko Nevada Temple in 2022. Shortly after Latter-day Saint pioneers arrived in the Western United States in the 1840s, they established a trading post near Carson City (now the state’s capital).
