Compass and true north bearings from Provo, Utah to the dedicated temples in the Church of Jesus Christ


I am fully aware that no one besides myself will have any interest in the contents of this page, but I love dealing with compasses, bearings, and declination.  I wanted to compile a list of the bearings from my home in Provo, Utah to the various temple locations.  I used an online distance and bearing calculator to obtain the bearings, using the latitude and longitude settings of the temples and my home.  This is just a simple effort to give me the general direction of the sacred houses of the Lord.  The first list places the temples in alphabetical order, and the second list is by compass setting.  The declination in Provo, Utah in March of 2024 is about 10 degrees east, thus the 10 degree difference between the true north heading and the magnetic compass heading.  Click here to return to the Temples menu.
