Temple History

The Columbia South Carolina Temple is the 62nd operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is the first temple built in South Carolina.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Columbia South Carolina Temple was held on the same day as the groundbreaking ceremony for the Hermosillo Sonora Mexico Temple.

The temple is located in a beautifully wooded neighborhood in southeastern Columbia, South Carolina's capital. The lovely residential area is scattered with well-kept homes and churches. Native loblolly pine and oak surround the temple, which is landscaped with crape myrtle, large holly, mums, and dogwood trees, reflecting the area's natural flora.2
