Overview

History

The Fort Lauderdale Florida Temple is a 28,000-square-foot building described in application materials as "an interpretation of Neoclassicism with arches, columns and a steeple." The temple will feature a sun and palm tree motif with beautiful murals in the first-stage endowment room, inspired by local landscapes.

On October 3, 2009, President Thomas S. Monson announced that Florida's second temple would be built in the area of Fort Lauderdale in southeastern Florida. The new temple will serve members living in South Florida and the Bahamas. Members in this region currently travel to the Orlando Florida Temple to participate in the Church's highest ordinances.1


  • Fort Lauderdale Florida Temple was the second temple built in Florida, following the Orlando Florida Temple (1994).
  • Fort Lauderdale Florida Temple was named the ENR Southeast's "Best Projects" award winner for 2014 in the Cultural/Worship category.
