Dear 100 Hour Board,
What temple has the highest altitude?
-The Old Bookshop
When I compiled the list of elevations for each temple, I included the ones that have been announced but not built yet. The altitudes are approximations based on the location of the temple.
The 5 highest are:
1) Quito, Ecuador ~ 9350 ft
2) Bogota, Colombia ~ 8660 ft
3) Cochabamba, Bolivia ~ 8392 ft
4) Arequipa, Peru ~ 7661 ft
5) Mexico City, Mexico ~ 7382 ft
And, since all anyone could ever want is statistics about the elevation of LDS temples, here's some of that:
Average Elevation: 1778.5 ft
Median Elevation: 671.5 ft
Mode: 33 ft
3rd quartile: 3108.75 ft
1st quartile: 89.75 ft
Outliers: All of the top 4 highest temples are outliers.
Aaaaand in case you're a more visual person, here's a chart:
