Mendoza Argentina Temple

A public open house for the Mendoza Argentina Temple will run from Thursday, August 22, through Saturday, September 7, 2024, excluding Sundays. Before the public open house, a media day will be held on Monday, August 19, 2024. Invited guests will tour the temple on Tuesday, August 20, and Wednesday, August 21, 2024.

Elder Gary E. Stevenson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will dedicate the temple in two sessions on Sunday, September 22, 2024. The dedicatory sessions at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. UTC will be broadcast to all units in the Mendoza Argentina Temple district.

Church President Russell M. Nelson announced the Mendoza Argentina Temple in October 2018. “Building and maintaining temples may not change your life, but spending your time in the temple surely will,” he said as 12 new temples were announced, including the Mendoza Temple. Construction began in December 2020.

The temple in Mendoza, located within the foothills and high plains of the eastern side of the Andes, is one of seven houses of the Lord operating, announced, or under construction in the country. The others are in Bahía Blanca, Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires City Center, Córdoba, Rosario and Salta. The temple in Rosario was recently announced in general conference on Sunday, April 7, 2024. The Salta Argentina Temple will be dedicated by Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles on June 16, 2024.

Argentina, where two German immigrants began preaching the gospel in 1923, is home to more than 480,000 members in about 730 congregations.
