Reservations for tours of the temple can be made by the general public beginning Dec. 1, at 10 a.m.

Open house organizers request advance reservations be made online at (maximum of ten reservations) or by calling 1-800-537-6181 or 801-240-7932. Group reservations can also be accommodated by calling these numbers.

The public open house, following tours for the media and dignitaries, will run from Thursday, Jan. 15, 2009, through Saturday, March 14, 2009.

Following the open house, the temple will be formally dedicated on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 20–22, 2009, in 12 sessions.

The Draper Utah Temple was announced by President Gordon B. Hinckley at the Church’s October 2004 General Conference.

It will be the 129th operating temple in the world and will serve approximately 60,000 members living in the Draper area.
