The Lima Peru Temple is the 38th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and the 1st temple completed in Peru (2015). Situated in eastern Lima in the upscale district of La Molina, the Lima Peru Temple, accentuated by six statuesque spires, rises resolutely above heavily traveled Avenida Javier Prado. The Lima Peru Temple was the third temple built in South America, following the Sao Paulo Brazil Temple (1978) and the Santiago Chile Temple (1983), and the first built in Peru. Lima, Peru, has the largest number of stakes of any city in South America.
