The Johannesburg South Africa Temple is the 36th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Temple is visible from many parts of the city with its six spires reaching into the sky. The edges of the building are finished with tiered layers of face brick, immaculately fitted together, giving it an elegance and distinctiveness.That with the gray slate roof and the indigenous quartzite for the temple’s perimeter walls and entrance archways, allow it to suitably fit in with the historic buildings nearby.

President Gordon B. Hinckley, late Mormon Prophet, dedicated the Johannesburg Temple on August 24, 1985. The temple serves Church members from Congo, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia, and Madagascar.

The Johannesburg South Africa Temple has a total floor area of 19,184 square feet, four ordinance rooms, and three sealing rooms.
