The Mormon religion, when compared to many of the other religions in the world, is relatively new. With only a few hundred years of history, the number of Mormon churches in the world is much fewer than other religious institutions. Unlike with Catholic churches, most of the Mormon temples have only been standing for a few decades and therefore don’t have as much significant history behind each building. Although many Mormon temples are housed within the United States, where the religion originally began, there are still many international temples with their own unique personalities.

The Mormon temples on this list are among the most beautiful in the world. Many Mormon temples are built with a similar style and design, with a white exterior and multiple spires. That’s what makes the few that are different all the more special. Some of these temples feature unique materials, from lava rocks crushed into concrete to Italian marble.
