La Paz Bolivia Temple
The La Paz Bolivia Temple is the third temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be built in Bolivia, where there are more than 220,000 members. President Russell M. Nelson announced its construction on October 3, 2021.
The Cochabamba Bolivia Temple was dedicated in 2000 by President Gordon B. Hinckley, and the Santa Cruz Bolivia Temple was announced by President Russell M. Nelson in 2020. The temple will serve members in the cities of La Paz and El Alto, where the Church has seen significant growth. Missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ arrived in Bolivia in 1964.
The La Paz Bolivia Temple will be built on a 3.8-acre site located near Avenida Los Sauces and Calle 8 de Calacoto in Calacoto, La Paz, Bolivia. Plans call for a temple of approximately 18,850 square feet.
