Description

The Durban South Africa Temple is a proposed temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is being built on a hillside property overlooking the ocean near the N2 highway in the Izinga development of Umhlanga Rocks, north of Durban.  It is the second Temple in South Africa, after the Johannesburg South Africa Temple.
