A one-week open house held in September provided the public with an opportunity to see inside the faith’s edifice and learn about why Latter-day Saints attend the temple.

The Raleigh North Carolina Temple was the 68th operating temple in the world for the Church when it was dedicated on December 18, 1999, by then-President Gordon B. Hinckley.

The temple sits nestled among a local forest and evergreen trees in the suburban Wake County community of Apex, roughly 15 miles southwest of the historic colonial city of Raleigh. Adjustments to some of the larger exterior features were made during the remodel: the portico was enclosed, and the tower’s steeple now stands 10 feet taller.
