It was the fourth temple built, even though the pioneers started first on its construction. The construction of the magnificent building took 40 years to build. While the Salt Lake Temple was being built, the Saint George, Utah Temple, the Logan, Utah Temple, and the Manti, Utah Temple were all started and completed.
