The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released the location of the temple to be built in Budapest, Hungary.
The Budapest Hungary Temple will be built on a 5.92-acre site located at Kocsis Sandor ut and Borsikafu utca, Harsanylejto, Budapest, Hungary. Plans call for a one-story temple of approximately 18,000 square feet, as well as an arrival center and patron housing.
There are over 5,200 Latter-day Saints in more than 20 congregations in Hungary, a country in central Europe. The first missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ arrived in Hungary in 1885. Missionary efforts ceased for several decades following World War I. The Church received official recognition from the Hungarian government in 1988, and the first meetinghouse in the country was dedicated one year later.
The Budapest Hungary Temple will be the first house of the Lord in Hungary. Church President Russell M. Nelson first announced this temple in April 2019. Currently, Latter-day Saints in Hungary travel to Freiberg, Germany, to worship in the temple.
