The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced that the Suva Fiji Temple will be closed for renovation beginning October 13, 2014.
Following the renovations, the temple will be opened for public tours and then rededicated.
In a release from the Pacific Mormon Newsroom, it said the renovation would improve air conditioning operations and refresh all finishes with some slight modifications.
It is expected that the renovation will take at least 14 months.
Other temples in the Pacific Area will accommodate Suva Fiji Temple patrons during the closure.
Meanwhile, a ground-breaking ceremony was held for the Suva Fiji Temple on May 8, 1999.
Earl M. Monson, a member of the Second Quorum of the Seventy, presided at the ceremony. The site chosen for the Fiji temple was 4.7 acres and is considered one of the most beautiful temple sites.
The Pacific Ocean can be seen from three sides of the property on one of the tallest hills in the area, and the site is located just a few minutes away from downtown Suva.
The exterior of the temple is finished with snow-white granite from Campolonghi, Italy and the grounds are beautifully landscaped.
The temple was open for public tours from June 7 to 12, 2000 and was dedicated on June 18, 2000 by LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley.
