The Seattle Washington Temple (formerly the Seattle Temple) is the 21st constructed and 19th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Located in the city of Bellevue, Washington, it has a modern single-spire design. Due to its proximity to the Bellevue Airfield, the proposed height of the spire was reduced, and a red strobe warning light was installed at the base of the angel Moroni statue.[1] In 1983 the Bellevue Airfield closed, and the light was shut off.

The LDS temple in Bellevue, Washington was announced on November 15, 1975, and dedicated on November 17, 1980 by Spencer W. Kimball. The temple was built on 23.5 acres (9.5 ha), has 4 ordinance rooms and 12 sealing rooms, and has a total floor area of 110,000 square feet (10,000 m2).[citation needed]
