San Juan Puerto Rico Temple
On 7 October 2018, Prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Russell M. Nelson announced that a temple will be built in San Juan Puerto Rico. Construction on the temple with an adjacent meetinghouse is expected to begin in 2019 and will take about two years to complete. This will be the first temple in Puerto Rico and the third temple in the Caribbean following the dedication of the Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple later this year.
On 12 January 2019, the Church released an artist rendering of the San Juan Puerto Rico Temple. The rendering features a single-story temple with an end spire reflective of the architectural styles in the area. The temple will be located at 123 Calle Ronda Urb Villa Andalucía in the Trujillo Alto area of San Juan.
