Phnom Penh Cambodia Temple
Progress continues on the Phnom Penh Temple as the ground has been leveled in preparation for foundational work. Ground was broken for the temple on September 18, 2021. The temple will be built on Russian Confederation Street between the Cambodia Institute of Technology and the Institute of Foreign Languages near the Royal University of Phnom Penh.
Desert Peak Utah Temple
The Desert Peak Utah Temple continues to take shape as framing for all three floors has finished. Framing has also begun on the steeple pedestal and the foundation walls have been waterproofed and backfilled.
There were no changes in temple reopenings this week, but the Montreal Quebec Temple has paused operations.
