Description

The Boston Massachusetts Temple is the 100th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). The Boston Massachusetts Temple is located in the Boston suburb of Belmont, and was dedicated for use on October 1, 2000. Because of a lawsuit filed by neighbors of the temple site, the Boston Massachusetts Temple was dedicated without the planned steeple. The Supreme Court overruled the earlier ruling saying, “A rose window at Notre Dame Cathedral, a balcony at St. Peter’s Basilica, are judges to decide whether these architectural elements are ‘necessary’ to the faith served by those buildings?” The judges concluded that, “It is not for judges to determine whether the inclusion of a particular architectural feature is ‘necessary’ for a particular religion.” On September 21, 2001 the steeple with the famous angel Moroni was set in place, completing the temple.nThe Boston Massachusetts Temple is large relative to most other LDS temples with a total of 69,600 square feet (6,470 m2), four ordinance rooms, and four sealing rooms. The exterior is finished with olympia white granite.
