The Nashville Tennessee Temple is the 84th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints .
The temple originally was to be built in the affluent Forest Hills, but the plan was turned down by city commissioners due to zoning rules. It was eventually built next to an existing meetinghouse about twenty miles southwest of Nashville. The temple's exterior is constructed from Imperial Danby white marble and has a single spire topped with the familiar statue of the angel Moroni. It serves 13,000 members in the Tennessee area.
