The Taylorsville Temple was announced in October Conference of 2019. The groundbreaking took place by Gerrit W. Gong on 31 October 2020.

The Taylorsville Utah Temple was the twenty-first temple built in Utah and the fifth built in the Salt Lake Valley following the Salt Lake City Temple, the Jordan River Temple, the Draper Temple and the Oquirrh Mountain Temple.

The Taylorsville Utah Temple is 73,492 square feet, and 216 feet 9 inches high.

The temple's design was inspired by local pioneer tabernacles. The architectural style is known as pioneer-era Gothic. 

The exterior art glass was designed by the consultant designer from FFKR Architects. The designs pay homage to the area's pioneer heritage while also incorporating arches and motifs inspired by Gothic architecture.

The flowers are stylized versions of local Utah wildflowers, specifically the bird's-foot trefoil(symbolic of lasting bonds and posterity), "red beauty" bergenia(represents health and renewal), and broadĀ­leaved gilia( symbolic of a long lived life, luck and immense happiness).

The deep burgundy, lavender and gold color palette was also inspired by the richness of Gothic architecture but stays true to the natural colors found in the west side of the valley.

The Taylorsville Temple will be dedicated on June 2, 2024.
