Dear 100 Hour Board,

Which temple (of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) is located at the lowest altitude relative to all the others?

-Pestering trivia extraordinaire


Dear friend, 

For more information about temple elevation statistics, see Board Question #91917. However, for your information the five temples with the lowest altitudes are as follows: 

1) The Hague, Netherlands ~ -10 ft (that's right, negative ten.)

2) Port-Au-Prince, Haiti AND Praia, Cape Verde ~ 0 ft

3) Bangkok Thailand AND Apia Samoa ~ 5 ft

4) Lisbon, Portugal AND Kona, Hawaii ~ 7 ft

5) Fort Lauderdale, Florida AND Laie, Hawaii ~ 9 ft

(several more are very close to these elevations. You may notice that the boxplot in Board Question #91917 is very positively skewed.... 25% of the temple elevations fall below 89 feet, and 50% below 671 feet. So really, most temples are located at relatively low elevations.)
