On 4 April 2021, at the 191st annual general conference, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the Cali Colombia Temple. The Cali Colombia Temple will be the country’s third temple and will serve over 15,000 Latter-day Saints.

Colombia is home to around 210,000 Latter-day Saints in nearly 250 congregations. The Bogotá Colombia Temple was dedicated in 1999. The Barranquilla Colombia Temple was dedicated in 2018. Missionary work began in Colombia in 1966. The first members of the Church lived in Cali and Bogotá. Cali is the second largest city in Colombia.

The Cali Colombia Temple will be built on a 3.14-acre site in the La Flora neighborhood of Cali. Plans call for a single-story temple of approximately 9,500 square feet.

On 23 September 2021, an official exterior rendering of the Cali Colombia Temple was released. No groundbreaking date has been announced.
