The Paris France Temple is a planned temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) to be constructed in Paris, France.[2][5] The announcement was made by church president Thomas S. Monson on July 15, 2011.

New temples are often announced during a church general conference. However, French newspapers reported the church's plans to build the temple at Le Chesnay, near Versailles, which prompted an announcement on July 15, 2011, three months prior to the October 2011 conference.[2]

The temple's construction schedule has not been announced. The Paris France Temple will be the first temple built in France.
