The Anchorage Alaska Temple is the 54th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The temple serves church members in Alaska and the Yukon Territory.

In 1997, church president Gordon B. Hinckley, announced the building of smaller LDS temples. The first of these smaller temples was built in Monticello, Utah and the second in Anchorage, Alaska. After the groundbreaking of the Anchorage Alaska Temple in 1998, the construction of this 6,800-square-foot temple took only nine months.

The west side of the Anchorage Alaska Temple features the seven stars of the Big Dipper pointing to the North Star, a symbol found on the Alaskan flag and on the Salt Lake Temple.
