Ghana LDS Temple Open for Tours; Veep Visits

Ghanaweb, Ghana
Dec. 3, 2003 • Monday December 8, 2003

The first temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) in West Africa is completed… and will open for public tours today.

The Mormon Church
Given that the theology and practice of the Mormon Church violates essential Christian doctrines, Mormonism does not represent historical, Biblical Christianity, is not a Christian denomination, and is not in any way part of the Christian church.

The temple is being built on the main avenue that runs through the center of town. It is surrounded by the Accra Christiansborg Stake Center, West Africa Administration Building, and an ancillary housing building. The completed project is beautifully perched upon a gently rising hill in the center of the city.

The Accra temple was built entirely by Africans, with materials native to the continent.

The temple facade is Namibian granite.

Moldings are of native makore wood.

Handcrafted furniture and special art-glass windows also reflect an African influence.

Pulic tours will end on December 20th.

The dedication of the new temple will be on Sunday, January 11, 2004.


Alhaji Aliu Mahama, Vice-President yesterday paid a visit to the newly-built head office and the Africa West Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints at Ridge in Accra.

He was conducted round by the Africa West Area President of the Church, Mr. Sheldon Chald.
