Seoul Korea Mormon Temples

The Seoul Korea Temple is the 37th temple built by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and offers a peaceful contrast to the busy city life of Seoul. Located in the neighborhood of Changcheon (in the Seodaemun District), this Mormon temple provides a place for Church members to worship God and find comfort and peace away from the world. Members of the Church consider temples as sacred places where heaven and earth meet, and they believe that their temples are houses of the Lord.

Temples are not places where regular Sunday worship meetings take place. Instead, they are places where marriages are performed and special promises are made to God. Only members of the Church who meet certain standards may enter temples after they are dedicated; however, the public is invited to come to the grounds and enjoy the beautiful gardens and walkways. In addition, open houses are held before temple dedications to allow the community to see the interior of the temple and learn more about the purposes of Mormon temples.
