The Córdoba Argentina Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) in the Villa Belgrano neighborhood of Cordoba, Argentina. The temple was completed in 2015. Its planned construction was announced by church president Thomas S. Monson on October 4, 2008, during the church's 178th Semiannual General Conference .[4] A later press release indicated that the temple will be built adjacent to the Argentina Córdoba Mission headquarters.[5] The Córdoba temple is the second in Argentina, after the Buenos Aires Argentina Temple.

The groundbreaking was October 30, 2010, presided over by Neil L. Andersen, who was accompanied by Walter F. Gonzalez, Mervyn B. Arnold, and Marcos A. Aidukaitis.[6] A public open house was held April 17 through May 2, 2015, excluding Sundays. The temple was formally dedicated by Dieter F. Uchtdorf on May 17, 2015.[3]
