The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Located in the Biobío or VIII Region of Chile, the temple sits along the banks of the Biobío River, which descends from the Andes Mountains westward into the Pacific ocean. The temple is capped with a dome, as are most Chilean religious buildings during this period. Historically appropriate slate tile roofing is used on both the housing and the temple.
Since the Biobío Region of Chile sees an alarming amount of seismic activity with massive earthquakes, a state-of-the-art base isolation system was incorporated into the temple building.
