I Love to See the Washington D.C. Temple

Located 10 miles north of the United State Capitol Building, the Washington D.C. Temple is the Church's 16th Operating Temple. Built with reinforced concrete sheathed in Alabama white marble, the Temple stands at 288 feet tall, which makes it the tallest Temple.

It contains six ordinance rooms and 14 sealing rooms in its 160,000 square feet. Its 52 acre wooded lot also contains a stake center and visitors center. Announced on November 16, 1968, it was dedicated on November 19-22, 1974 by Spencer W Kimball.
