Santiago Chile Mormon Temples

Located off Pocuro con Pedro de Valdivia Avenue, the Santiago Chile Temple is the 24th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the first to operate in a Spanish-speaking country. It stands on 2.61 acres and is adjacent to Church offices; a meetinghouse; a distribution center, where Latter-day Saints may obtain Church materials; and a building that houses temple patrons.

The first missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were officially sent to Chile from the Argentine mission in June 1956. Santiago’s first stake, or group of congregations similar to a diocese, was established in 1972 by Elder Gordon B. Hinckley, who later became president of the Church. He was impressed at the time of his visit that a temple should be constructed in that area someday soon. The temple was announced on April 2, 1980, and dedicated on September 15–17, 1983, in 10 sessions by President Hinckley, who was then a counselor in the First Presidency of the Church.
