Fantastic leaded glass!

This was a very interesting visit. The church itself is was dramatic, but the "can't miss" are the incredible stained glass windows.

This church allows to inside their sanctuary to see their famous Tiffany glass stained glass windows, but only Monday through Friday. The windows were beautiful. All but one pane were religious themes. The other one looked like how a stained window would be imagined to look like - shapes of various colors. It's worth a quick stop to see!

This church is a must see when in Topeka. Tiffany himself came to this church to design the most beautiful collection of stained glass windows you will ever see. An engineering light experience that changes as the sunlight moves across the sky.

A beautiful place of worship enhanced by the magnificent Tiffany windows. A volunteer, Helen, was so informative and we walked both the Sanctuary and the Chapel. Worth a visit.

We saw this listed in the AAA booklet and we are so glad we went. The most lovely church Windows we have ever seen. The church interior is awesome, not only because of the Tiffany Windows, but also the hand carved wood. Our guide was excellent and answered all of our questions. Truly awesome!

The main thing is that you're just not expecting it the first time you walk in the sanctuary. To see a full set of Tiffany windows is pretty jaw dropping. Well worth seeing if you are in the area.

This church has some of the most beautiful stained glass windows we have ever seen. More beautiful than any we have seen in Europe. It is across the street from the Capitol.

The Tiffany windows are a treasure and amazing to see up close. Try and visit on a sunny day but they are great at any time. I have been around these for years and they never cease to amaze me. The whole church sanctuary is wonderful. Well worth the time to see them.
