Anchorage Alaska Mormon Temples

Not far from Cook Inlet and the lush trees of Chugach National Forest, the Anchorage Alaska Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints welcomes members of the faith who worship in this house of God. The Mormon Church’s 54th operating temple is farther north than any other LDS temple in the world. 

Against the rugged Chugach Mountains in the distance, the temple’s single spire rises, topped with a statue of the angel Moroni. Quartz infused into the white and gray granite of the temple exterior shines in the sun. In the prolonged Anchorage twilight, the temple is bathed in a beautiful warm light. An image similar to the one on the state flag of Alaska — the Big Dipper pointing to Polaris, the North Star — also appears on the exterior granite. The inscription “Holiness to the Lord, the House of the Lord” reminds patrons that they are entering a building dedicated to God and His purposes.
