The Ciudad Juárez Mexico Temple is located in the border city of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua,[4][5] and serves about 12,000 church members in northern Mexico and the adjacent U.S. state of Texas.[2][6][7] About 1,700 members attended the groundbreaking ceremony on January 9, 1999, and after the temple was completed over 25,000 people attended a week-long open house.[2][8] LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the Ciudad Juárez Temple on February 26–27, 2000,[3][9] and the dedication ceremonies were attended by approximately 8,100 members from El Paso and Juarez.[8]

The Ciudad Juárez Mexico Temple has a white marble veneer, a total floor area of 10,700 square feet (990 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.[2][3]
