The São Paulo Brazil Temple (formerly the São Paulo Temple) is the 19th constructed and 17th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Located in the Brazilian city of São Paulo, it was the first LDS temple built in South America, and also the first temple to use the single story, single spire design. The spire is 101 feet (31 m) tall.
The São Paulo Brazil Temple was announced on March 1, 1975, with construction beginning twelve months later. Hundreds of local church members gathered to clear the site, which included removing brush, weeds, and banana trees. Hundreds more members donated their time to produce fifty thousand blocks of cast stone composed of quartz, marble chips, and white concrete for the exterior of the temple. It was dedicated on October 30, 1978 by Spencer W. Kimball. The temple has 2 ordinance rooms and 4 sealing rooms, and has a total floor area of 59,246 square feet (5,504 m²).
On August 20, 2003, a gold-leafed statue of the angel Moroni was added to the temple during an extensive renovation and enlargement project 25 years after its dedication. Gordon B. Hinckley rededicated the São Paulo Brazil Temple on February 22, 2004.
