Albuquerque New Mexico Temple

  • Was dedicated on March 5, 2000 by President Gordon B. Hinckley.
  • Was the first temple built in New Mexico.
  • The sunstone, moonstones, and startstones designs on the exterior of the temple are similar to that of the Salt Lake Temple, which appear in their astronomical order from the earth (starstones highest and moonstones lowest.) The Celestial room stained glass also features a design of a sun.
  • The coloring page design was based upon the temple’s back facade and various stained glass windows.
