The Paris France Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) currently being constructed in Le Chesnay, a suburb of Paris, France.[2][5]

Church president Thomas S. Monson announced that a Latter-day Saint temple would be constructed in France on July 15, 2011. Generally new temples are announced during a church general conference. However, French newspapers reported the church's plans to build the temple at Le Chesnay, which prompted the early announcement, three months prior to the October 2011 conference.[2]

The Paris France Temple will be the first temple built in France, and is located near Versailles.
