The Manaus Brazil Temple is located on the west end of Manaus on the banks of the Rio Negro. Manaus is the capital of the state of Amazonas and is located about 11 miles above the confluence of the Rio Negro with the Amazon River.
The Manaus Brazil Temple was the sixth temple built in Brazil.
The Manaus Brazil Temple was a highly welcomed announcement made on May 23, 2007. For the thousands of saints of northern Brazil who, for many years, had traveled days to reach the Caracas Venezuela Temple, Recife Brazil Temple, or São Paulo Brazil Temple, a temple in Manaus was a blessing indeed.
Ground was broken for the Manaus Brazil Temple on the banks of the Rio Negro on Friday, June 20, 2008. Elder Charles A. Didier presided over the ceremony. The program included inspiring remarks and musical selections.1
On October 5, 2011, numerous onlookers gathered around the Manaus Brazil Temple to witness the raising and placement of the gold-leafed angel Moroni statue atop the single spire.
