The Concepción Chile Temple is a planned temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) to be constructed in Concepción, Chile. The intent to construct the temple was announced by church president Thomas S. Monson on October 3, 2009, during the church's semi-annual general conference.[4] The temple was announced concurrently with the Brigham City Utah, Fort Lauderdale Florida, Fortaleza Brazil and Sapporo Japan temples; at the time, the announcement brought the total number of temples worldwide to 151. It will be the second temple constructed in Chile, along with the Santiago Chile Temple which was dedicated in 1983.

On October 17, 2015, Walter F. González presided at a groundbreaking to signify beginning of construction.[1][5]
