Laie Hawaii Temple, Laie

4.6
Laie Hawaii Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) located on the northeast shore of the Hawaiian island of Oʻahu. The temple sits on a small hill, a half-mile from the Pacific Ocean, in the town of Lāʻie, 35 miles (56 km) from Honolulu. Along with Brigham Young University–Hawaii and the Polynesian Cultural Center, the Laie Hawaii Temple plays an important role in the town of Lā'ie, with the Visitors' Center attracting more than 100,000 people annually.
In addition to initial building and construction, the temple has been dedicated for use by several presidents of the LDS Church. The temple site was dedicated by Joseph F. Smith on June 1, 1915, with Heber J. Grant dedicating the completed structure on November 27, 1919. Spencer W. Kimball rededicated the temple after significant expansion on June 13, 1978. Following seismic upgrades and remodeling, Thomas S. Monson rededicated the temple on November 21, 2010.

The Laie Hawaii Temple was the first temple built by the LDS Church outside the contiguous United States. The temple is also the oldest to operate outside Utah, and the fifth-oldest LDS temple still in operation. The Laie Hawaii Temple was formerly known as the Hawaiian Temple or the Hawaii Temple until the implementation of the standard naming convention for LDS temples.

  • Beautiful religious building dedicated to the Lord's work in an exceptional location. I have wanted to see this building for myself since I was young. I was not disappointed. The volunteers were wonderful from start to finish. There was a calm and assuring atmosphere. I wanted to stay longer, but the vacation schedule was in conflict with the re-opening. The grounds are immaculate. There was plenty of parking. Egress was simple and uncomplicated.
  • Beautiful temple! Awesome gardens and temple grounds! The visitor center is super nice, with awesome missionaries to show you around. They have a fun little interactive video tour that explains their religious beliefs with eternal families and the afterlife.
