BREAKING TEMPLE NEWS: Church Announces Location, Releases Rendering for the Bengaluru India Temple

Hello again, everyone! I have breaking temple news to report from the Church this evening. In the last half hour or less, the rendering and location has been released for the Bengaluru India Temple. According to that news release, the temple is planned to be roughly 38.670 square feet in area, and it will be located at 2-B, Garudachar Palya, Mahadevapura, Bengaluru, Karnataka, in India, sitting.on a 1.62-acre site.  An existing chapel and Church offices on the site will be razed to make room for the temple, which will have an adjacent two-level meetinghouse, a distribution center, patron housing, and Church offices. In the coming months, Church leaderss will work with the city through the approvals process. Housing for the temple president, temple and service missionaries, and the mission president will also be built.  This temple is still very much in the design and planning phase. In coming months, the Church will be working with city leaders to get more detailed plans approved, and once that approval is granted, the Church can then look at a groundbreaking. But hopefully, that process won't take too terribly long. As some of you might recall, President Nelson only intended to announce six temples during his first General Conference, but the night before conference weekend began, the Lord told him: "Announce a temple in India." This now makes the third of those seven temples then announced to have preliminary information released.

There are now 6 temples in my "Groundbreaking Anticipated" section of my temple construction progress report, leaving 6 that have had initial details confirmed, and 7 others for which more official details are pending, in addition to the remaining 16 temples on which we are waiting for initial or more official details. I fully anticipate that a huge set of a temple announcements, including on the open house and dedicaiton of the Rio de Janeiro Brazil Temple, in addition to news of at least 2-3 temple groundbreakings that are almost certain to be held prior to the April General Conference.

I continue to monitor all such developments and will pass word of those along to you all here as I become aware of such things.That does it for now.
