The temple is located on Gorordo Avenue in Lahug. Tours will begin at the meetinghouse adjacent to the temple and will consist of a 12-minute video presentation and a 30-minute walk through the temple. Free parking is available at the site.

Following the public open house, the temple will be formally dedicated on Sunday, 13 June 2010. Three dedicatory sessions will be held to accommodate Church members in the area who will be served by the new temple.
