ALOHA from O'ahu
---La'ie Hawai'i Temple---

La'ie Hawai'i Temple

La'ie Hawai'i Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) located on the northeast shore of the Hawaiian island of O'ahu. The temple sits on a small hill a half-mile from the Pacific Ocean in the town of La'ie, 35 miles (56 km) from Honolulu. Along with Brigham Young University Hawai'i and the Polynesian Cultural Center, the La'ie Hawaii Temple plays an important role in the town of La'ie, with the temple Visitors' Center attracting more than 100,000 people annually.

La'ie Hawai'i Temple was the first LDS Church temple built outside of the continental United States. The temple is also the oldest to operate outside of Utah, and the fifth-oldest LDS temple still in operation. The site of the temple was dedicated by Church President Joseph F. Smith on June 1, 1915, and the completed structure was dedicated by Church President Heber J. Grant on November 27, 1919. La'ie Hawai'i Temple was formerly known as the Hawaiian Temple or the Hawai'i Temple until a standard naming convention for LDS temples was adopted in the early 2000s.

La'ie Hawai'i Temple is not used for regular Sunday worship. As temples are considered sacred houses of the Lord, only church members who keep Gospel covenants are allowed to enter for the purpose of participating in sacred ceremonies such as baptism for the dead and eternal marriage, a ritual in which couples and families are sealed for time and all eternity. Because of these strict guidelines, non-Mormons are not allowed inside temples, but public tours of the grounds outside and of the visitors' centers are available.

You DO NOT need to enter the Temple Grounds to find the cache.

~~~GeoGerms are not members or presidents of the LDS Church, we just find this area interesting.~~~
