This is How the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Temple will look like
The church has announced the location for the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Temple accompanied by the release of an exterior rendering.
The plans call for a single-story temple of approximately 32,000 square feet with a center spire. Detailed design plans for the temple are still being developed, and further details including interior and exterior renderings will be made public later.
A groundbreaking date has not yet been set. Project leaders will be working with county officials on preliminary plans for the temple, and they will soon begin filing public documents.
The Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Temple will be the state’s second temple; the first in Philadelphia was dedicated Sept. 18, 2016. Pennsylvania is home to more than 52,000 Latter-day Saints in 108 congregations as well as 12 stakes and two missions.

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints consider each temple to be a “house of the Lord” and the most sacred place on earth. Unlike meetinghouses, where Sabbath worship and weekly activities take place, temples are open throughout the week and are closed on Sundays.
