Kaohsiung Taiwan Temple
The Kaohsiung Taiwan Temple will be located in southern Taiwan in the island's third most populous city with over 2.75 million residents. Taiwan's second temple was announced on October 3, 2021, by President Russell M. Nelson.
The first temple constructed in the country, the Taipei Taiwan Temple, was dedicated in 1984. There are currently more than 62,000 Latter-day Saints who attend approximately 98 congregations in Taiwan. Missionaries first arrived in Taiwan in 1956.
The Kaohsiung Taiwan Temple is currently in the planning stages. On November 28, 2022, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced its location. It will be built on a 1.26-acre site located near Dachang Road and Dehua Street, Niaosong District, Kaohsiung City, Taiwan. Plans call for a single-story temple of approximately 10,900 square feet.
