The Provo City Center Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) on the same site as the former Provo Tabernacle in Provo, Utah. Completed in 2016, the temple utilizes much of the external shell of the tabernacle, all that remained of the original building after a fire in December 2010.

The LDS (Mormon) church dominates here, and most businesses (including some gas stations) are closed on Sunday. Provo is also considered one of the most right-leaning, politically "conservative" communities in the USA, although BYU and UVU students add some political variety. If visiting BYU campus, be aware that nearly all campus services are closed Tuesdays between 11AM and noon due to weekly campus devotionals and forums. There's also a conservative dress code, and campus police will escort those who do not abide by it off the premises. Utah state law prohibits the drinking of alcohol in public parks, national parks and state parks. Avoid bringing alcohol if picnicking or camping on public land, as violations will be met with a misdemeanor charge. The main area code in Provo is 801, but because of split area codes, the area code must be dialed along with the local number.
