8 New Temples Announced, Including Shanghai Temple

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

In the concluding session of the 190th Annual General Conference, President Russell M. Nelson announced eight new temples:

  • Bahia Blanca, Argentina
  • Tallahassee, Florida
  • Lubanboshi, Democratic Republic Congo
  • Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • Benin City, Nigeria
  • Syracuse, Utah
  • Dubai, United Arab Emirates
  • Shanghai, People’s Republic of China

Regarding the Shanghai Temple, President Nelson said, “Expatriate and Chinese congregations will continue to meet separately. The Church’s legal status there remains unchanged. In an initial phase of facility use, entry will be by appointment only. The Shanghai Temple will not be a temple for tourists from other countries.”

He also shared, “Because we respect the laws and regulations of the People’s Republic of China, the Church does not send proselyting missionaries there; nor will we do so now.”

More information about these temples will be provided as it becomes available.
