Comments
Brazil has 27 states. Currently there are Latter-day Saint temples operating or under construction in four of them.

Although Brazil ranks third among nations in the number of Latter-day Saints (behind the U.S. and Mexico), operating and currently announced Latter-day Saint temples are much less widespread. Brazil currently has four operating temples and announced. When all of the currently announced temples are completed (most are already under construction), Brazil will be rank 5th among nations in number of temples, behind the U.S. (over 50), Mexico (12), Canada (6) and Australia (5).

While most states in Brazil do not have temples, they do have stakes.
