The Washington DC Temple is the 16th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The temple was the first temple built by the church east of the Mississippi River since 1846, when the original Nauvoo Temple was dedicated. Built at a cost of about $15 million in 1968, the temple is the church's tallest; its easternmost spire is 288 feet tall. Its floor area of 160,000 square feet (15,000 m2) is the third-largest among church temples.
