The 23,000-square-foot temple was designed to reflect the neoclassic building style typical of other historic Chilean church buildings. The interior features original art glass, hand-tufted carpets and stone from Portugal and Spain. Also featured is beautiful lapis lazuli, native to Chile. The temple stands 124 feet tall and is crowned with a gilded statue of Moroni, a Book of Mormon prophet who is significant to Latter-day Saints for his role in the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
