Cordoba Argentina Mormon Temple
On 4 October 2008 The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) announced the construction of a new temple in Córdoba, Argentina. The new temple will be located in Villa Belgrano next to the Church mission home, and will be Argentina’s second temple.
Members in the Córdoba area currently travel some 400 miles to participate in temple ordinances in the Buenos Aires Argentina Temple, which serves 60 stakes and 30 districts throughout Argentina.
Membership of the Church in Argentina has grown steadily since the 1920’s. The first members were European immigrants who requested missionaries. There were 356, 000 Mormons in Argentina in 2006.
