The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the locations of three temples to be built in North and South America: the Santiago West Chile Temple, the Cleveland Ohio Temple, and the Austin Texas Temple.

Santiago West Chile Temple

The Santiago West Chile Temple will be built at Primo de Rivera 1551, Comuna de Maipu, Santiago, Chile. Plans call for a single-story temple of approximately 12,500 square feet.

The Santiago West Chile Temple was announced by Church President Russell M. Nelson in October 2021. This will be the city’s second temple. The Santiago Chile Temple, the first house of the Lord built in Spanish-speaking South America, was dedicated in September 1983.

Chile is home to more than 600,000 Latter-day Saints in over 560 congregations. Including the two in Santiago, there are four temples in total in Chile. The other two are the Concepción Chile Temple and the Antofagasta Chile Temple, which is currently under construction.
