The April 1981 announcement of the Stockholm Sweden Temple was received with virtually no opposition. There were numerous sites explored for the building of the temple, but the one decided upon by church leaders was in Västerhaninge in Haninge Municipality, just south of Stockholm. Municipal officials and merchants welcomed the temple project, and later the Municipality showed further support by changing the name of the street on which the temple is located to Tempelvägen ("The Temple Road"). The Stockholm Sweden Temple was dedicated by Gordon B. Hinckley on July 2, 1985.
The temple sits on a 6-acre (24,000 m2) lot with six spires rising above the pines in the nearby forest. A cobblestone path leads to its doors. The Stockholm Sweden Temple has a total of 14,508 square feet (1,347.8 m2), four ordinance rooms, and three sealing rooms. The temple serves Latter-day Saints from the countries of Sweden, Norway, and Latvia.
