Denver Mormon Temple

-A A +A
1986, Bobby R. Thomas and LDS church architectural staff. 2001 Phillips Circle near S. University Blvd. and County Line Rd.

This modern celebration of Colorado's long and active Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a Mormon Moderne design of precast stone with a soaring, streamlined tower capped by a statue of the angel Moroni. On a 7.5-acre site, the dramatically horizontal, terraced building with its single, stepped spire contains fifty-four rooms, including four ordinance rooms and six sealing rooms.
