Unity Temple raises more questions than it answers. But it's unutterably marvelous, fresh from a major two year rehab and renovation. I don't know that the guided tour is essential, though it is pleasant, but the building needs to be experienced to be appreciated. Don't...More

This temple was one of wrights simpler projects that makes a big statement. He did an excellent job of making a large gathering area intimate yet highly useful.

From the outside is just plain cement, kind of plain on the inside too. There is natural window light coming in. The sanctuary has pews on different levels one even below the main floor. We took the audio tour.

The newly restored temple is an architectural gem. All the flowery descriptions of it fall short of adequately describing it. If you like FLW, it is worth the stop. You have to buy tickets at the FLW studio and home.

We couldn't visit the interior but watched the outside from every angle and that alone is already worth to go for.
