First rendering released for San Juan Puerto Rico Temple

An artist rendering of the San Juan Puerto Rico Temple, the third temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Caribbean, was released Saturday, Jan. 12.

The announcement was made on the Church’s Newsroom website.

The temple, announced just three months ago by President Russell M. Nelson in the October 2018 general conference, will be located at 123 Calle Ronda of Urbanización Villa Andalucía in San Juan’s Trujillo Alto area.

The rendering shows a single-story temple and a single, front-end spire, all in architecture common to the island.

Although a groundbreaking date has yet to be set, construction is expected to begin later this year and take about two years to complete.

The temple will be the first in Puerto Rico and the third in the Caribbean, following the existing and operational Santo Domingo Dominican Republic Temple and the under-construction Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple, which is to be dedicated later in 2019.
