The Hong Kong China Temple (Chinese: 中國香港聖殿), formerly the Hong Kong Temple, is the 48th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).
The LDS Church first sent missionaries to Hong Kong in 1853. Almost 140 years later, in 1992, then-First Counselor in the First Presidency, Gordon B. Hinckley, announced plans to build a temple in the territory. Finding a site on which to build, however, proved difficult, especially given the high cost of real estate in the area. Finally, it was decided that the temple would be built on the site of the existing mission home and chapel.

Best place ever in Hong Kong. Give the next building a visit (the Visitor Center) if you're ever in town! They will be glad to help you with whatever you need or whatever you want to know about the Temple and about the LDS Church! You will not regret it.

This Building has a very special meaning to me. I had the chance to enter this place after a few years of earnestly trying to correct some mistakes from the past. I felt like I needed to put my life in order, so I did. Yet I was not able to feel at complete peace. The moment I entered this place and listened to the words that were pronounced inside I felt something amazing, I felt no more guilt for the past, I felt for the first time that I was completely clean. This building is not only beautiful inside and out, but it's a Holy Place. It's the House of God.
