Temple History

The Tampico México Temple comes as the product of the rapid growth of membership experienced in this area in recent years. Tampico has increased from one stake to four in about 25 years. Within the temple district live about 18,000 members organized into four stakes, three districts and the Mexico Tampico Mission. A new temple in Tampico will substantially reduce the expense of traveling to the México City México Temple for members that live in the twin cities of Madero and Tampico. Because of the presence of a high mountain range, the Sierra Madres, the first leg of the 500-mile trip between the coast and Mexico City has proven to be a difficult endeavor (Church News, 8 August 1998).

"Therefore let the Saints be diligent in building the Temple, and all houses which they have been, or shall hereafter be, commanded of God to build; and wait their time with patience in all meekness, faith, perseverance unto the end."
—Joseph Smith
