Meridian Idaho Temple
A new temple for Meridian, Idaho, was announced at General Conference by Mormon Prophet Thomas S. Monson on April 2, 2011. It will be the fifth temple to be built in the state of Idaho. Meridian is the third largest city in the state and is located about eleven miles west of Boise. There are more than 400,000 Latter-day Saints in Idaho.
The new temple in Meridian will decrease the load on the Boise Temple, which is filled to overflowing at some times. The Meridian-Nampa area is experiencing fast growth and the creation of new wards and stakes.
The new temple will be constructed at 7345 North Linder Road, a few blocks north of the intersection of North Linder Road and Chinden Blvd.
