Fiji Temple, Suva

Fiji Temple, Suva

The Suva Fiji Temple is the 91st operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

On May 7, 1998 the First Presidency of the LDS Church announced that plans had been made to build a temple in Suva, Fiji.

The site chosen for the Fiji temple was 4.7 acres (19,000 m2) and is considered one of the most beautiful temple sites. The Pacific Ocean can be seen from three sides of the property on one of the tallest hills in the area, and the site is located just a few minutes away from downtown Suva. The exterior of the Mormon temple is finished with Snow-white granite from Campolonghi, Italy and the grounds are beautifully landscaped.

The temple was open for public tours June 7 through the 12th, 2000. Just before the open house, starting on May 19, political unrest occurred in Fiji.

The Suva Fiji Temple was dedicated on June 18, 2000 by President of the LDS Church, Gordon B. Hinckley. Sixty people attended the dedication, which was held in the Celestial room of the temple.
