A free public open house is set to begin on Saturday, October 12 and go through October 19, 2019, for the Asunción Paraguay Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In anticipation of the open house, the first photos of the interior of the temple have been released.

Asunción Paraguay Temple

The Asuncion Temple is located at the intersection of Avenida Espana and Avenida Brasilia. It was constructed on the same property as the first chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Paraguay, which was removed to make room for the temple. Adjacent to the temple is a newer chapel/meeting house which was built incorporating one of the historic mansion homes of Asuncion.

A stylized version of the Lapacho tree flower, which is the Paraguay National Tree and flower, was used as inspiration throughout the building from the lighting, to decorative paint and color scheme. The Lapacho flower is most commonly found in a lavender color, which was used in the temple’s fabrics, art glass and even stone. The Spanish Colonial furniture style was inspired by the early architecture and furniture of Paraguay, prior to their destruction during the Paraguayan War.
