Budapest Hungary Temple Artistic Rendering Released

An artistic rendering has been released for the Budapest Hungary Temple, which was announced in April 2019. The location of this house of the Lord was released in October 2023. This will be the first house of the Lord in Hungary. Currently, Latter-day Saints in Hungary travel to Freiberg, Germany, to worship in a temple.


There are over 5,200 Latter-day Saints in more than 20 congregations in Hungary, a country in central Europe. The first missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ arrived in Hungary in 1885. Missionary efforts ceased for several decades following World War I. The Church received official recognition from the Hungarian government in 1988, and the first meetinghouse in the country was dedicated one year later.

Latter-day Saint temples differ from chapels and meetinghouses, where members gather for Sunday worship services. Temples are considered houses of the Lord where Christ’s teachings are reaffirmed through sacred ordinances that unite families for eternity. Inside, members learn more about the purpose of life and make covenants to serve Jesus Christ and others.
