Standing east of the nation’s capital, the Montevideo Uruguay Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serves faithful Church members living in Uruguay. It was the first Mormon temple built in the country and the 11th in South America, making Uruguay the second-to-last nation on the continent to have a temple within its borders, just before Paraguay.
The Montevideo Uruguay Temple is covered in elegant granite and decorated with circle designs above the windows. A steeple rises from the roof and supports a gold-leafed statue of Moroni, a Book of Mormon prophet; the statue’s trumpet symbolizes the gospel message sounding throughout the world. On the temple grounds, Uruguay’s flag waves proudly over beautifully landscaped flower beds.
