The Columbia South Carolina Temple is surrounded by a dense, lush stand of native loblolly pine trees and oak trees in a southeast corner of Columbia, South Carolina. It is the 62nd operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the first in South Carolina. In temples throughout the world, Latter-day Saints worship God, make important commitments and find peace.
The temple stands on property the Church purchased more than 20 years before plans to build the temple were announced. At 10,700 square feet, the temple includes instruction rooms, where patrons learn more about mankind’s eternal destiny and divine nature; a baptistry; sealing rooms, where couples are married and families are united together for eternity; and a celestial room, meant to emulate the glory and holiness of God. Its design matches dozens of temples constructed in the late 1990s and early 2000s as a part of the Church’s effort to bring temples closer to as many Church members as possible. The Columbia South Carolina Temple serves Church members in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee; members in the area previously traveled to the temple in Atlanta, Georgia.
