The Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple is the 152nd operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This granite-cladTemple has been designed with architectural elements to complement the classic architecture exhibited in the neighboring buildings and throughout historic Philadelphia where the United States was founded in 1776. The spires, for example, are reminiscent of the clock tower on Independence Hall, and the period furnishings inside the temple will create an air of historic Philadelphia.
