During the 192nd Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, on October 2, 2022, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct four new temples in the Mexico City metropolitan area. He explained, "We are also planning to build multiple temples in selected large metropolitan areas where travel time to an existing temple is a major challenge."[1] The Mexico City Mexico Temple was dedicated in 1983, and the Mexico City Benemerito Mexico Temple was announced in April 2022.

The Cuernavaca Mexico Temple will be located in Cuernavaca, about 50 miles south of Mexico City. It is the capital and largest city in the state of Morelos. In the 19th century, the city was nicknamed "the city of eternal spring" by German scientist and explorer Alexander Von Humboldt. About 350,000 people live in the historical city. It is a favorite vacation spot of many residents of Mexico City due to its proximity and mild climate. Nearly 1.5 million church members of the Church live in Mexico.[2]


The Cuernavaca Mexico Temple is currently in the planning stages. No location has been announced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
