In a land filled with ancient Mayan ruins sits a modern-day temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Located on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, the Mérida Mexico Temple is a little over an hour’s drive from the Uxmal ruins and an hour and a half away from the Chichén Itzá ruins. Members of the Church worship God here in their native languages, both Spanish and Mayan.
The exterior of the 10,700-square-foot structure is made of Guardiano white marble from Torreón, Mexico, and features a single spire topped by a statue of the angel Moroni. The temple sits on a 1.31-acre site and has one of the smallest floor plans for Mormon temples. It was constructed during the period from the late 1990s to the mid-2000s when the Church built smaller temples throughout the world to make temple worship accessible to more members.
