The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will begin construction on a 30,000-square-foot temple in Cedar Park in June 2024, with plans to complete it in June 2026.

The new temple, named Austin Texas Temple, will sit on a 10.6-acre lot adjacent to the existing meetinghouse on East Park Street, officials said. Upon completion, the temple will include two instruction rooms, two sealing rooms and one baptistry.

President Russell M. Nelson made the construction announcement in 2022, noting there are six other temples in Texas either in operation or under construction, including in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Lubbock, San Antonio and McAllen.
