In the heart of Costa Rica’s capital city, the San José Costa Rica Temple stands as a beacon of light to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The exterior shines with a Blanco Guardiano white marble finish, and the single spire rises heavenward with a gold-leafed statue of the angel Moroni, a prophet from the Book of Mormon, on the top. The two-acre grounds are rife with vibrant flowers, lush shrubbery and palm trees swaying in the tropical wind.The San José Costa Rica Temple’s design is similar to the design of dozens of other temples; it was built during the increased effort to build new temples brought about by Church President Gordon B. Hinckley. As a result, the temple was completed and dedicated just 14 months after its announcement. Architect Alvaro Inigo created the architectural plans based on a standard design provided by the Church, and the temple displays a contemporary style. The edifice contains 10,700 square feet and houses instruction rooms, sealing rooms, a baptistry and a celestial room. The sealing room is where a man and a woman can be married eternally, and the celestial room symbolizes dwelling in God’s presence forever.
