The Manti Utah Temple is the fifth constructed temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Located in the city of Manti, Utah, it was the third LDS temple built in the Rocky Mountains (after the St. George and Logan Utah temples). The Manti Utah Temple was designed by William Harrison Folsom, who moved to Manti while the temple was being constructed.
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.”
The temple was completed in 1888, and a private dedication was held on May 17th, 1888 with the prayer given by Wilford Woodruff. Three public dedications were held on May 21-23 1888, and were directed by Lorenzo Snow. Wikipedia
