The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Justice Neil Gorsuch, several other members of the U.S. Supreme Court and 30 members of Congress have toured the Washington D.C. Temple while it is open briefly to the public.

Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, Florida Sen. Rick Scott, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and the U.S. ambassador to Turkey, Jeff Flake, are among the major American political figures to visit while the temple is open briefly to the public after a four-year renovation.

Leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have spent the previous 10 days hosting invited guests from governments, media, businesses, charities and other faiths.

A six-week open house for the general public begins today.

So far, a dozen U.S. senators and 18 members of the U.S. House of Representatives (see the entire list below) have visited the unmistakable D.C. landmark, which for the past 48 years has been open only to church members.
