Fiji Mormon Temple Opens its Doors to the Public

The public is invited to tour the recently renovated Suva Fiji Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Church’s First Presidency has announced that the open house will be held from Monday, January 25, through Saturday, February 6, 2016, excluding Sunday, January 31.

Once a temple is dedicated only Latter-day saints in good standing can enter the Church’s temples, but during the open house, the general public is invited to tour the building free of charge. Tours, consisting of a 10-minute video presentation followed by a 30-minute walking tour through the temple, will begin at the adjacent Fiji Service Centre. The temple is located at 2-20 Lakeba Street, Samabula, Suva.

“We welcome everyone to come and see our temple,” said Vito Qaqa, a local Church leader who is overseeing the open house. “We look forward to sharing with visitors why Latter-day Saints consider temples our most sacred places of worship.”
