The Manaus Brazil Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) in Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil. The announcement of the temple came on May 23, 2007,[4][5] and construction began with a groundbreaking on June 20, 2008.[4] The temple was dedicated on June 10, 2012 by Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the church's First Presidency.

The Manaus Brazil Temple is the sixth temple in Brazil, the first in the north region of the country, and receives patrons who formerly traveled long distances to attend the Caracas Venezuela Temple.[4] It is located in the bairro of Ponta Negra, near the artificial beach.[citation needed]
