With the dedication of the new Provo, Utah City Center Temple, there will be 150 Temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in operation around the world. The LDS.org website presents a number of interesting ways to view the location and information about all of the Temples in operation. Above is a screenshot from Google Earth, the free Google program for presenting information on a map of the world. The LDS.org Map Page for Temples provides a KML file, designed to interact with Google Earth and produce the view seen above. By clicking on the Google Earth map, you can zoom in to find specific information about each Temple.
The pop-up photos and information are linked directly to the LDS.org website description of each Temple. The Maps page for the Temples also includes a link to a Google Maps representation of all the Temples which would provide driving directions to each location.
You may want to take some time to explore this very interesting offering from LDS.org.
