Lake Oswego, OR
The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints
Rising elegantly among towering Douglas-fir trees, the six spires of the marble-clad Portland Oregon Temple create a beautiful sight for motorists traveling Oregon’s I-5, situated about 8 miles south of downtown Portland in Lake Oswego. On the east side of the temple is a serene reflection pool sitting at the base of the main spire. A fountain on the west side replenishes an infinity pool. Visitors are welcome to walk among the gorgeous gardens that decorate the temple grounds and to obtain additional information. This was the first temple for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the state of Oregon, and the 42nd operating temple in the world.
