The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Church reveals what the Singapore Temple will look like
The official rendering for the Singapore Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been released.
The two-story, 18,000-square-foot temple will be constructed on a one-acre site located at a bend in the West Coast Highway at 233 Pasir Panjang Road.
The meetinghouse, the current building, sitting on the site, will be demolished. The Singapore Temple will be the first for the sovereign island city-state in maritime Southeast Asia and will serve members there and in other countries in the region. Rather than a city and country or state name like most of the Church’s temples, it will be known simply as the Singapore Temple.
Missionary work in Singapore started in 1968, with the Church having a cosmopolitan mix of members from Chinese, Malaysian, Indian, European and other ethnic and national backgrounds who have been drawn to Singapore and its hub of commerce, educational and cultural opportunities
The Church has yet to announce the temple’s groundbreaking date.
