Taiwan was first introduced to the LDS Church in the mid-1950s. The Taipei Taiwan Temple was announced in 1981 and church leaders decided to build on the site of the mission home in the center of Taipei.
On November 17, 1984, Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the Taipei Taiwan Temple. The temple is built on one-half of an acre and has over 16,000 square feet (1,500 m2) with an exterior of white ceramic tile. There are four ordinance rooms and three sealing rooms.
