Set apart from the urban landscape in an oasis of natural beauty, the Chicago Illinois Temple offers a welcome retreat to visitors. Located in the northern suburb of Glenview just 15 miles from downtown Chicago, the temple stands on 13 acres of verdant woodland convenient to Interstate 294. It is bordered on the south by The Grove, a 135-acre nature sanctuary and national historic landmark. The beautifully kept grounds are open to the public and feature two elegant water fountains. In an effort to preserve the integrity of the surrounding natural landscape, the roof on the southern side of the temple is not illuminated at night, allowing the migratory pathways of native birds to be undisturbed.
The temple is built of gray buff marble, and its architecture is a modern adaptation of a traditional six-spire design. The white-tipped spires create a striking display, encouraging viewers to direct their gaze and their thoughts heavenward. Two other temples — the Boise Idaho Temple and the Dallas Texas Temple — share the architectural style and floor plan designed by Church architect Emil Fetzer.
