Temple Facts

The Spokane Washington Temple was the second temple built in the state of Washington, following the Seattle Washington Temple
19th operating temple
Seattle Washington Temple
(1980).

In March 2009, nearly a decade after its dedication, the Spokane Washington Temple received a new angel Moroni statue atop its spire. Instead of facing east as the original statue did, this statue was positioned facing west—the same orientation as the temple.

On August 22, 2009, in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the Spokane Washington Temple, members of the Spokane Washington East Stake ensured that every seat in every session was filled the entire day.
