Hamilton New Zealand Temple Open House

August 26–September 17
All are invited to tour the Hamilton New Zealand Temple.
Admission is free. Reservations are recommended.

We are delighted to invite you to a free public open house and tour of the recently remodelled Hamilton New Zealand Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Originally constructed and dedicated in 1958, the Hamilton New Zealand Temple has undergone three years of seismic strengthening and interior renovations. Touring the temple is a special opportunity. After the temple is rededicated, entrance is reserved for members of our faith. To us, temples are the most sacred places on earth. It is where we can draw closer to God and where families can be united for this life and for eternity.

All are welcome to enjoy the beautiful grounds and this sacred house of the Lord.

The story of the Hamilton New Zealand Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints begins long before ground was broken in 1956. As early as 1830, Māori matakite (seers) from several tribes had foreseen the coming of religious messengers who would be distinct from the Christian missionaries their people had already encountered.

Latter-day Saint Temples

Latter-day Saint Temples can be found all over the world. What are they for? What happens inside?

Latter-day Saints are a temple-building and temple-loving people. It has been so from the earliest days of the Church. Through the Prophet Joseph Smith, the Lord declared that “my people are always commanded to build [temples] unto my holy name”
All our beliefs center on Jesus Christ. We celebrate His matchless life and His infinite grace, and we invite all to come unto Him.
