Baton Rouge Louisiana Mormon Temples

Settled among mature trees near a wetlands nature reserve, the Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple is the 94th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The 10,700-square-foot building is one of 30 smaller temples that were announced in April 1998 by Church President Gordon B. Hinckley in order to bring temples closer to Church members. The temple sits on 6.3 acres of beautifully manicured grounds, which also include a stake center — a meetinghouse used for Sunday worship.

The temple’s exterior finish is white Imperial Danby marble quarried in Vermont. The contemporary design includes a single spire topped with a statue of the angel Moroni, who was a Book of Mormon prophet. Long, slender art-glass windows glimmer on every side of the building, and circles in each window’s top pane harmonize with relief circles carved into the exterior stone. The interior crystal chandelier was polished and assembled by young women in the temple district, with the help of their mothers. Their first attempt did not look quite right, so they started all over again, determined that only the best would be used in the temple.
