Overview

The Johannesburg South Africa Temple is the 36th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and the 1st temple completed on the African continent. The Johannesburg South Africa Temple is located in the historic suburb of Parktown, known for its grand turn-of-the-century Victorian mansions, many of which have succumbed to commercial, educational, and civic developments.

The nearly two-week public open house of the Johannesburg South Africa Temple attracted more than 19,000 visitors including civic and business leaders and government representatives. Nearly 3,500 of the 12,000 members of the extensive temple district attended the dedicatory services of the Johannesburg South Africa Temple. The dedication of this temple brought a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to every habitable continent of the world.
