On 4 October 2020, during the 190th semiannual general conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans for the construction of the Lindon Utah Temple. The Lindon Utah Temple will be a three-story building of approximately 81,000 square feet.

The Lindon Utah Temple will be the twenty-fifth temple built in Utah and the seventh built in Utah County, following the Provo Utah Temple (1972), the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple (1996), the Payson Utah Temple (2015), the Provo City Center Temple (2016), the Saratoga Springs Utah Temple (under construction), and the Orem Utah Temple (under construction).

On 21 December 2020, the location of the Lindon Utah Temple was announced. The temple will be constructed near the intersection of 800 East and Center Street in Lindon, Utah. On 26 April 2021, an official exterior rendering was released for the Lindon Utah Temple.

Lindon is a small city of approximately 11,000 people located immediately north of Orem and south of Pleasant Grove in Utah Valley. Church members in Lindon currently belong the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple district, which encompasses 63 stakes.

Utah currently has 17 dedicated temples, with 15 operating, and two — the Salt Lake Temple and the St. George Utah Temple — closed for major renovations. Additional temples in Utah are under construction in Layton, Orem, Saratoga Springs, St. George (the Red Cliffs temple), Taylorsville, and Tooele (the Deseret Peak temple).

No groundbreaking date has been announced for the Lindon Utah Temple.
