Cobán Guatemala and Okinawa Japan Temple Renderings Released

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released exterior renderings showing the planned design of two temples previously announced in 2019 by Church President Russell M. Nelson.

The Cobán Guatemala Temple will be built on a 5.4-acre site adjacent to 4a. Avenida 4-48 Zona 8, Barrio Bella Vista, in Cobán, Guatemala. Plans call for a single-story temple of approximately 8,800 square feet. A meetinghouse and temple patron housing will also be built on the site.

The Cobán Guatemala Temple was announced in October 2019 and will be that country’s third temple. More than 281,000 Latter-day Saints live in Guatemala in nearly 440 congregations. Missionaries first arrived in the Central American country in 1947.

The Okinawa Japan Temple will be located on a half-acre site at 7-11, Matsumoto, Okinawa Shi, in Okinawa-ken, Japan. Plans call for a two-story temple of approximately 10,000 square feet. A temple patron waiting area will also be added on to an adjacent existing meetinghouse.

The Okinawa Japan Temple was announced in April 2019 and will be the fourth in that country. Japan is home to more than 130,000 Latter-day Saints spread throughout more than 260 congregations. The Church has been in Japan since 1901.

Detailed design plans for these temples are still being developed. Further information will be made public later. Groundbreaking dates have not been set.
