Minutes from the Yardley Inn and Spa stands the historic Manti, Utah Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Built in 1888, the temple stands as a sentinel overlooking the valley, and can be seen for miles from many locations. Temple sessions for patrons are held Tuesday through Saturday on the half hour beginning at 7:30 am and ending at 7:30 pm. The temple grounds are accessible to tourists who admire the beautiful flower gardens and lawns such as the one which slopes gracefully down the south side to form a setting for the Mormon Miracle Pagaent.


The Mormon Miracle Pagaent has become one of the nation’s largest outdoor theatrical presentations. It is performed on a stage setting that is larger than a football field. It has a cast of over 600 people from the local community, and an audience that consistently tops 100,000 in just eight performances. Presented by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for over 30 years, this spectacular outdoor pageant is one everyone should see. Each summer the pageant runs for 2 weeks mid-June, and each night it begins at sundown, approximately 9:30 pm. Admission to the pageant is free, and the event is accompanied by several booths and vendors in the community, creating a festival-like atmosphere with plenty of good food, artisans, and crafts available.
