Cobán Guatemala Temple
During the 189th semiannual general conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints held in October 2019, President Russell M. Nelson announced that a temple would be built in Cobán Guatemala. The temple will be the third Latter-day Saint temple built in Guatemala. The two temples that are currently operating in Guatemala are the Guatemala City Guatemala Temple and the Quetzaltenango Guatemala Temple.
The Cobán Guatemala Temple will be built on a 5.4-acre site in the highlands of central Guatemala adjacent to 4a. Avenida 4-48 Zona 8, Barrio Bella Vista, in Cobán, Guatemala. Plans call for a single-story temple of approximately 8,800 square feet. A meetinghouse and temple patron housing will also be built on the site.
Detailed design plans for the Cobán Guatemala Temple are still being developed and further information will be made public later. A groundbreaking date had not been set.
