The Santiago Chile Temple is the 26th constructed and 24th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Located in the Chilean capital, Santiago, it was built with a modern single-spire design.
The LDS temple in Santiago was announced on April 2, 1980, and dedicated on September 15, 1983 by Gordon B. Hinckley. The temple was built on an 2.6-acre (11,000 m2) plot, has 2 ordinance rooms and 3 sealing rooms, and has a total floor area of 20,831 square feet (1,935.3 m2). The spire is 76 feet (23 m) tall. The Apia Samoa, Nuku'alofa Tonga, and Sydney Australia temples all have the same design. The temple underwent remodeling and was then rededicated by Hinckley on March 12, 2006.
Since its initial construction, there have been additions to the temple property including housing for patrons who come from the far reaches of Chile to stay in while they attend the temple.
