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. …
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.
