Temple Facts

The Bogotá Colombia Temple was the fifth temple built in South America and the first built in Colombia.

Due to difficulties that included finding a suitable location and acquiring property for the Bogotá Colombia Temple, over nine years passed from the announcement to the groundbreaking ceremony.

The Bogotá Colombia Temple is considered by many to be the most beautiful building ever constructed in Bogotá, if not all of Colombia.

"A temple is a place in which those whom He has chosen are endowed with power from on high—a power which enables us to use our gifts and capabilities—to bring to pass our Heavenly Father's purposes in our own lives and the lives of those we love."
—David B. Haight
