The Porto Alegre Brazil Temple is the 102nd operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Temple construction began on May 2, 1998. The temple was dedicated by LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley on December 17, 2000. The temple sits on a hill in Porto Alegre's Vila Jardim district.

The Porto Alegre Temple overlooks the city from the east toward a large river and port for which the city is named. It has an exterior of white granite and a single spire topped with a statue of the angel Moroni. The temple has a total of 10,700 square feet (990 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.

The Porto Alegre Temple was the last temple of the LDS Church to be dedicated in the 20th century.
