The Fresno California Temple is the 78th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
California has long had a history with the LDS Church, starting with members who sailed to San Francisco aboard the Brooklyn and members of the U.S. Army unit known as the Mormon Battalion who were discharged in San Diego, many of whom stayed and helped build up the San Diego area.
A groundbreaking ceremony was in March 1999. Before the LDS temple was dedicated it was opened to the public. During that time 53,000 people toured the temple. On April 9, 2000 LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the Fresno California Temple.
