Overview

The Tuxtla Gutierrez Mexico Temple is the 75th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and the 6th temple completed in Mexico.


History

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Tuxtla Gutiérrez Mexico Temple was held on the same day as the groundbreaking ceremonies for the Fresno California Temple, Fukuoka Japan Temple, and Melbourne Australia Temple.


Tuxtla Gutiérrez is the capital of Mexico's southernmost state, Chiapas, which borders Guatemala. Archaeologists have been fascinated for many years with its hundreds of ancient ruins. Among discoveries in the area are carved monuments used as calendars, stone boxes, wheel-made pottery, cement, the true arch and incense burners. The city is nestled in a valley among the mountains that cover much of this part of the isthmus.
