  • Busan, Korea

President Nelson said the temples in the Mexico City area are part of an effort to build houses of the Lord in selected large metropolitan areas where traveling to an existing temple is a significant challenge.

President Nelson has announced 118 new temples since he became leader of the Church in 2018. With this latest announcement, the Church now has 300 total temples worldwide in operation, under construction or renovation, or announced.
