An artistic rendering of the Bangkok Thailand Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was released today. The rendering features a majestic 44,405-square-foot, six-story temple with multiple spires reaching heavenward. The temple will be built with the finest materials and workmanship available and be aesthetically pleasing to the community as a religious house of worship.
President Russell M. Nelson, the worldwide leader of the Church, said, “The Bangkok Temple will be a blessing to all the people of this area. It will be a symbol of faith to tens of thousands of members of the Church throughout the region and their commitment to follow Jesus Christ. It will also stand as a reminder that God loves and cares for all of His children. All we do in the Church points to the Lord and His holy house.”
An additional 91,370-square-foot religious building will feature two religious meetinghouses, a service center, seminary and institute facilities and mission offices and housing. Substantial underground parking is also planned at the site located on Petchaburi Road in the center of a residential and business area in Bangkok.
