Hong Kong China Temple Closes for Renovation
The Hong Kong China Temple officially closes today to accommodate an extensive renovation. It was the first multipurpose temple building constructed by the Church, housing a temple, meetinghouse, family history center, mission office, and three apartments. Non-temple spaces are expected to be reclaimed for temple worship, as the Church in recent years has constructed a meetinghouse, housing facilities, mission office, and distribution center across the street.

The Church has since constructed a beautiful meetinghouse, housing facilities, mission office, and distribution center across the street, reclaiming many of the functions that were once housed in the temple.
