The Denver Colorado Temple is the 40th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints .
The LDS Church announced plans to build a temple in Colorado on March 31, 1982. Almost two years later, Gordon B. Hinckley presided over the site dedication and groundbreaking. Hand-carved woodwork adorns the temple interior, along with hand-painted designs on the walls and ceilings. The temple also features more than six hundred square feet of specially designed stained glass windows. The temple is situated on a hilltop in Centennial that was once part of a golf course and country club.
