On 13 December 2008 The Church announced that it will build a temple in Trujillo, Peru. This is the second temple in Peru. Saints from all over the country have been attending the Lima, Peru Mormon temple, and those from the Trujillo area have been traveling by bus for 9-10 hours in order to do so. Often they would have to patiently wait for hours before there was room in the temple for them.
“We are confident that this will be a blessing to the many faithful Saints in this and surrounding areas who have had to travel long distances to enjoy the blessings of the temple. We commend the Saints for their devotion and faithfulness, and are thankful for the blessings that will come to them through the construction of this new temple.”
The groundbreaking for the new temple took place on Saturday, September 17, 2011, with Elder Rafael E. Pino of the Seventy presiding.
After construction was completed, a public open house was held from 8–30 May 2015, excluding Sundays. Approximately 100,000 people participated in the open house proceedings prior to the building’s dedication.
In connection with the dedication, a cultural celebration was held in the Coliseo Gran Chimu sports arena on 20 June 2015.
The Temple was dedicated on Sunday, 21 June 2015. The temple dedication services were broadcast at 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to meetinghouses in Peru. The regular three-hour block of meetings were cancelled so that Latter-day Saints could have the opportunity to participate in the dedicatory sessions. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency presided over the services and gave the dedicatory prayer. Two choirs of Latter-day Saints from the temple district provided music for the cornerstone ceremony and inside the temple for the dedication services..
President Uchtdoef was accompanied by Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Elder Michael John U. Teh of the Seventy, and a representative of the Church Temple Department. During the cornerstone ceremony, President Uchtdorf remarked:
- We express our gratitude to the community, to the city, to the country, for making possible that this beautiful edifice, is being built on this historic location. And let this cornerstone, become a cornerstone in your lives, to build a foundation, of values, built on the gospel of Jesus Christ, because Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of this work, and of our lives.

The temple is located in the Urbanización Primavera section of Trujillo. The site is located near the prominent Campo Eterno cemetery, on the highway to Huanchaco.
The building has a classic inspired colonial Spanish architecture accented with a white, green and amber finish. The exterior of Brazilian granite is finished white and “Branco Ceara”. The interior finish has a vine motif throughout including the wood, stained glass and much of the granite. The wood of the doors and trim are made of African makore. Most floors and stone ornamentation are made out of Peruvian limestone.
