Kansas City Missouri Temple May 6th 2012. It is the first to be built in the Greater Kansas City area. Previous attempts at building an LDS temple in the area failed in Independence in 1833 and Far West in 1838, after church founder Joseph Smith had selected and dedicated locations for their construction. A temple was completed in Independence in 1994 by the Community of Christ, which is not affiliated with the LDS Church.
Seattle, WA LDS Temple. I feel the pictures of our Temple look ugly-like a govt building but in person it is really very nice with a lot of carving to the building that makes it look more 3D and the grounds are sooo peaceful and awesome.
