However, this temple was destroyed almost immediately after it was completed when a fire broke out and burned down most of Nauvoo. The city was abandoned as most Mormons moved west after rumors spread that Joseph Smith had been killed.

Where was the Second Temple of the Latter-day Saints built?

The Nauvoo Temple was the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' second temple. The first temple of the church was built in Kirtland, Ohio, in 1836. When the main body of the church was forced to leave Nauvoo, Illinois, in the winter of 1846, the church sought to sell the edifice, and was eventually successful in 1848. The temple was dismantled over time and sold for scrap metal.

In 1851, Joseph Smith received a revelation commanding him to build another temple in Jerusalem where "the keys of the kingdom" would be entrusted to men called "high priests." This temple was to be similar to the one built in Nauvoo with minor changes that made it appropriate for use by Christians. The temple was never built; however, the concept of using temples as centers of religious activity where saints could meet with God almighty and receive guidance from Him on how to live their lives was not abandoned. Instead, the role of the temple was changed so that it could serve as a place where members could find comfort and hope during times of trial and suffering.

Temples have played an important role in the history of the LDS faith. Today, many churches do not have dedicated buildings in which to meet, so temples provide essential sanctuaries where members can go for spiritual guidance and comfort.
