On December 24, 2000 The Washington Post reported on the diversity of religious structures along New Hampshire Avenue, located just outside the District line. The first of these is the elaborately decorated Cambodian Buddhist Temple, followed by the "Oz-like spires" of the Mormon Temple and "the onion domes" of St. Andrew's Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral. The Muslim Community Center, including community center, mosque, and minaret, and the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church are the two final landmarks along this eclectic stretch of road.
