Description:
The Chicago Illinois Temple is the thirty-fifth temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is the second of three church temples that have been built in Illinois (The first and the third being the Nauvoo Temple and the Nauvoo Illinois Temple). Located in the Chicago suburb of Glenview, the site of Chicago Illinois Temple was dedicated on August 13, 1983 by LDS President Gordon B. Hinckley. The structure itself was constructed in Gray buff marble and its roof features gray slate. Architects used a revolutionary design for Mormon temples, adapting the traditional six-spire design and adding modern motifs.

The temple also allowed local Mormon members to contribute their means, talents, and time. Children donated pennies. Young women made dolls for the temple nursery. Women crocheted and tatted altar cloths. Many donated hours in helping with the open house, held 15 July–3 August 1985, during which over one hundred thousand people toured the temple. President Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the Chicago Illinois Temple on August 9, 1985. The temple now has a total of , five ordinance rooms, and four sealing rooms.
