Manti Temple History The LDS temple in Manti was announced on June 25, 1875 by Brigham Young. The Salt Lake Temple had been announced years before in 1847 but construction was still underway and would be until 1893, so the Manti Temple was built along with the St. George and Logan temples to satisfy the church’s immediate need for temples. The site for the temple was Manti Stone Quarry, a large hill in the area. It had been prophesied numerous times since the beginning of settlement in the area that this would be the site of the temple. When Brigham Young announced the building of the temple he also announced that the 27-acre plot would now be known as “Temple Hill.” Main Attractions Ancient Fremont Indian rock art Museum with relics from the Fremont Culture Camping Castle Rock Campground is located nearby.
