Washington DC Temple by skoticus Washington DC Temple by skoticus
This is the Washington DC Temple for the CHurch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been here many times...I love it. It is so beautiful, inside and out. This was a beautiful summer morning and very clear. You can see the Temple reflect the light of the sun as it is rising in the east. The Angel's trumpet hearalds the coming day (and Christ when he shall return from the East)

Passed this temple tons of times while driving on the Capital Beltway and it never stopped fascinating me. It looked really cool during a sunset, almost like a magic castle from some kind of a tale...just the dragon and the princess were missing :-)

Well, next time you should go see it up close! There are some great shots, and the grounds are really pretty. Only Mormons can go inside, but there is a visitors center on the grounds, too, so you can visit that.

There is a visitors' center on the grounds which you are welcome to go into. And you can still walk around the very well tended grounds, which has some nice gardens and forest trails.

I have an acquaintance who is seeking LDS/Mormon temple photos to publish in a book...Do you have any photos of temples in other countries, or some of the ones outside Utah? She would be interested in them if they are high resolution photos...

Yep. It's pretty much awesome in every light. I've also seen it in some fog, that was amazing. One of my friends took a picture of it in fog, and you can't even see the spires. Its amazing.

Right. Mormon is the same as Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The temples are named according to the major city in the area, and since this one is only a mile from DC, it is called the Washington DC Temple.

This is a stunning structure indeedand perhaps my favorite. I assume that you have driven by it in the night. The lights that shine on it are quite beautiful. They were once much brighter but there were so many accidents on that long stretch of I-495 just north of that they had to dim them down quite a bit some ------ 15 or 16 years ago. About 5 or 6 years ago they dimmed them even more so the skeptical isnít any thing like it once was but injury lives have been saved from what I hear.
