"One of DC's Most Iconic Religious Buildings"

Washington DC Temple, Washington Overview

The Washington DC Temple is one of the most iconic and recognizable religious buildings in the DC area. The temple was inaugurated in 1974, making it the 18th temple of the Mormon faith and the first along the East Coast. The architecture of the building has a number of symbolic references to major events in the Bible, such as the 7 floors signifying the 7 days of creation. The six towering spires, three on each end make for a magnificent external facade that is encased in white marble.

The temple conducts regular prayers services for members, welcoming visitors to be a part of them as well. The temple also has a visitor center where guests can learn more about Mormon history as well as that of the temple.
If you are in the DC region during the Christmas period, then make sure to attend the Festival of Lights. One can be entertained by Mormon choirs and artists performing, while taking in the beauty of the lighting and the Nativity scene.
