Overview

The Montevideo Uruguay Temple is the 103rd operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and the 1st temple completed in Uruguay (2001).

Occupying one end of a Church-owned city block in Montevideo's most exclusive neighborhood, Carrasco, the Montevideo Uruguay Temple adds to the wide range of architectural styles found along the city's southeast coast. Sharing the block with the temple are a meetinghouse, a patron housing facility, two mission homes, a regional service center, and a Distribution Services store. The lush temple grounds are filled with palm trees, shrubs, and brightly colored flowers.
