Washington D.C. Temple

The Washington D.C. Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is the 16th operating and 18th constructed temple of the LDS Church. The temple is located near the Capital Beltway and was the first temple built east of the Mississippi River since 1846. The temple was constructed in 1968 and cost around $15 million. Members of the church were asked to contribute to the construction of the temple. They were able to donate $6 million for the building.

As the construction came to an end, the temple received a lot of public attention from press releases, so tickets for the open house were quickly sold out. There have only been minor renovations done to the temple since. Architect Keith W. Wilcox designed the Washington D.C. Temple. The design of this temple imitates the temple in Salt Lake City due to its use of white Alabama marble and incorporation of six spires – three on each side. The towers on the west represented the Aaronic priesthood, and the towers on the east represent the Melchizedek priesthood. With an area of about 160,000 square feet, the floor of the temple is the third-largest among the other church temples.

Since 1978, the Washington D.C. Temple has hosted the Festival of Lights. Every year, the festival is held at the visitors' center from early Dec. to early Jan., with different ambassadors invited as guest speakers. The features that attract visitors from neighboring cities and states are the live performances, public lighting ceremony and narrated nativity scene.
