When mining is done, proceed on smoothing the floor. While the process is still on going, you can decide whether you want to make another temple since one temple can only be assigned to one deity.

The next thing you have to do is click this zone tab or press z and choose Meeting Area. After that, click and drag the tiles that will cover the whole temple. Assign it as a temple as well. 

After assigning it as a temple, you can also see the list of the name of deities and how many of the dwarves worship them. However, you can also opt to choose No Specific Deity so that anyone can go here.

Lastly, you can modify whether it is exclusive for the citizens and long-term residents only, or if visitors are also welcome.
