Arequipa Peru Mormon Temples

A third temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will soon stand in the shadow of the Andes in Peru. Plans for building the Arequipa Peru Temple were announced in October 2012, happy news for faithful Mormons living in Peru’s second most populous city. All Latter-day Saints living in Peru currently attend the Lima Peru Temple, which stands nearly 500 miles north of Arequipa. A second temple in Peru is under construction 340 miles north of Lima, in Trujillo.

Like other Latter-day Saint temples, the Arequipa Peru Temple will showcase excellence in architecture, interior design and landscaping, bringing a site of beauty and grace to the surrounding community. Temples are the most sacred worship space for Latter-day Saints, so Church members take great care to use the best materials available in temple construction to demonstrate reverence for God.
