Overview

The Lubbock Texas Temple was the third temple built in Texas, following the Dallas Texas Temple (1984) and the Houston Texas Temple (2000). The groundbreaking ceremony for the Lubbock Texas Temple was held on the same day as the groundbreaking ceremony for the Monterrey Mexico Temple.

The Lubbock Texas Temple stands just behind the Lubbock Texas Stake Center on Frankford Avenue in Southwest Lubbock. A stroll around the temple offers a view of rich symbolism exhibited in the beautiful panes of stained glass and in the etched granite walls. Visitors are welcome to tour the temple exterior and to attend Sunday services in the adjacent meetinghouse.
