I Love to See the Kyiv Ukraine Temple

The Kyiv Ukraine Temple was announced on July 20, 1998, less than a month after the dedication of the first meetinghouse in Ukraine. It was dedicated on August 29, 2010 by President Thomas S Monson. The dedication was streamed via encrypted internet to Stake Centers in the Temple District, the first time the Internet has been used to carry a Temple Dedication.

The Temple sits on 12.35 and has two ordinance and two sealing rooms in its 22,184 square feet. The exterior is Amarelo Macieira granite with quartzite crystals which reflect sunlight.

The Kyiv Ukraine Temple is the 134th operating Temple, and the most recent. It is the first (and only) Temple in the former Soviet Union, and the 11th Temple in Europe.
