The Fortaleza Brazil Temple is a planned temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) to be constructed in Fortaleza, Brazil. 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. The temple was announced concurrently with the Brigham City Utah, Concepción Chile, Fort Lauderdale Florida and Sapporo Japan temples. At the time, they brought the total number of temples worldwide to 151 and this will be the seventh temple in Brazil.
As of May 2014, government approval has been granted for the temple's redesigned plans, with permission to begin construction. A general contractor was being hired to commence with full-scale operations. Although a groundbreaking ceremony, presided over by David A. Bednar, was held in November 2011, the original double-tower design of the temple was denied due to nonconformance to the city plan, leading to the decision to redesign.
