Church Announces Extensive San Diego California Temple Renovation

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

On April 17, 2023, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the San Diego California Temple is slated for some major upgrades and will soon close.

The temple will close in July 2023 for extensive renovations. The completion date for the renovation, including dates for the public open house and rededication, will be announced later.

Latter-day Saints in southern California are encouraged to attend other temples in the area during the closure.

The San Diego California Temple was announced by then-Church President Spencer W. Kimball on April 7, 1984, and dedicated by President Gordon B. Hinckley on April 25, 1993. It was closed in January 2018 for an extensive renovation and seismic upgrade. It reopened on May 19, 2019, after more than a year of construction.

California is home to 12 houses of the Lord, including temples that have been announced for San Jose and Bakersfield by President Russell M. Nelson in the April 2023 general conference. Other temples in use or under construction in the state include the Feather River, Fresno, Los Angeles, Modesto, Newport Beach, Oakland, Redlands, Sacramento and Yorba Linda California Temples.
