The Birmingham Alabama Temple is the 98th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

In 1998, when the LDS Church announced the intent to build a temple in Alabama two sites were originally considered. The first site revealed that the earth was too unstable for construction of the necessary size. Obstacles also prevented the project from being built on the second site. Finally in April 1999, the LDS Church selected a third site and decided that the temple would be built in the suburb of Gardendale where the church already owned property to build a meetinghouse. The excess land proved an adequate size for one of the LDS Church's new smaller temples. From the groundbreaking to the dedication of the temple took only eleven months.

Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the Birmingham Alabama Temple on September 3, 2000. The Birmingham Alabama Temple has a total of 10,700 square feet (990 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.
