Overview

The Trujillo Peru Temple is the 147th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and the 2nd temple completed in Peru (2015).

The Trujillo Peru Temple is located on a large parcel of ground adjacent to the beautiful Campo Eterno cemetery on the highway to Huanchaco, just east of the famous ruins of Chan Chan—the largest Pre-Columbian city in South America (20 square miles), designated a World Heritage Site in 1986. An accommodation center will share the temple site, providing a place for traveling patrons and workers to freshen up before entering the temple and to stay overnight. Land has also been set aside for a future meetinghouse. Before the Campo Eterno site was acquired, the temple was originally to be constructed on the site of the Trujillo Peru Primavera Stake Center.
