Located in Lahug in Cebu City, it is the second LDS temple in the Philippines. Announced in 2006, the temple was dedicated in three sessions on June 13, 2010, following a two week open house period.[3][4]

The plans to build a temple in Cebu City were announced by the LDS Church to local church leaders on 18 April 2006.[5] Ground was broken and the site was dedicated on 14 November 2007 by Dallin H. Oaks, a member of the church's Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.[6]

The temple was built on an 11-acre (4.5 ha) site that it shares with a church meetinghouse, patron house, residences for the temple and mission presidents, and a mission office.[7]
