Temple Site

The Stockholm Sweden Temple is the 34th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, (LDS Church) and the 1st temple completed in Sweden. Architecturally inspired by the local culture, this temple stands among slender pines and bilberry sprigs on a beautifully wooded site in Västerhaninge, about 20 miles south of Stockholm. Adjacent to the temple site are a patron and missionary housing facility, the stake center for the Stockholm Sweden South Stake, and the temple president's residence. The grounds are exceptionally handsome, featuring verdant landscaping, cobblestone pathways, and a charming rotunda.
