LDS Church announces plans for new temples in Arizona and Peru
The last time President Monson had announced new temples was in October 2011, when he said the church would build temples in Provo, Utah; Paris, France; Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo; Durban, South Africa; Barranquilla, Colombia; and Star Valley, Wyo.
Ground has been broken for the Provo City Center Temple, which will rise out of the ashes of the former Provo Tabernacle with renovation and reinforcement of the exterior walls that were damaged in a fire that destroyed nearly all of the historic building. Groundbreaking dates for the other five have yet to be announced.
There have been almost 30 temples announced since President Monson became the president of the church in February 2008, and 15 temples have been dedicated since then. President Monson dedicated 11 of the 15, starting with the temple in Rexburg, Idaho, a week after becoming president.
