The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints opened the doors of the Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple to the media on Monday, November 6.
Referring to the eternal purpose for which the Church of Jesus Christ builds temples, Elder Jorge F. Zeballos, President of the South America Northwest Area of the Church, said, “We are honored to present a work with these characteristics and purpose.”
The temple is 47,413 square feet, stands nearly 81 feet high, and sits on 2.46 acres of land. It is located at Av. Eloy Espinoza 680, Urb. Palao, San Martín de Porres in Lima, Peru.
The open house included the presentation of an introductory video and a guided tour inside the temple to learn about the sacred beliefs of the faith.
Lima will be the third city in the world to have two temples of the Church of Jesus Christ in the same city (the other cities are Provo and South Jordan, Utah).
The public open house of the Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple will take place from November 10 through December 9, 2023, excluding Sundays.
