This church which was built in 1848, by William Strickland, designer of the state capitol, is unique. The front of the church has twin towers and they and the body of the church are done in an Egyptian Revival style that is very rare in the United States. It is probably the best remaining example of that style of architecture in this entire country. Even if you do not visit the church when it is open, it is worth a look see as it is just that unique. Should be a destination for any lover of architecture.

Located at 154 5th Avenue North in Nashville, Tennessee, at the corner of 5th Avenue and Church Street, the Downtown Presbyterian Church probably can't match the history of its two predecessors but it has built an international reputation for its unique architecture. In fact, because of its distinctive Egyptian Revival architecture, it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1993. The first church on this site burned down in 1832. President Andrew Jackson was a member and was presented with a ceremonial sword on the steps of the church after the Battle of New Orleans. The second church burned down in 1848, after future U.S. President James K. Polk was inaugurated as Governor of Tennessee. The current sanctuary, built in 1848, was designed in the unique Egyptian Revival style by William Strickland, who also designed the Tennessee State Capitol. Exterior design elements include Egyptian style lotus columns and a winged sun disk. Interior Egyptian style elements include stained glass windows, woodwork and renderings of Egyptian scenes on the sanctuary walls. The twin towers are reminiscent of the twin towers of St. Stephen's Church in Philadelphia, where Strickland lived before moving to Nashville. Downtown Presbyterian Church is one of few examples of Egyptian Revival architecture in the United States and may be the best surviving ecclesiastical example. Historically, it was seized by Federal forces and served as a military hospital during the Civil War, temporarily becoming Nashville's Union Hospital No. 8 with 206 beds. It also was used as a refuge for Nashville citizens from floods in the 1920s. Today, the church sponsors a Saturday meal program for the homeless and helps to train the homeless in restaurant skills. The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

Without a doubt, one of the most unique Protestant Churches you’ll ever step foot in. Very well done. Tremendous history. It initially seemed so bizarre to step into a Christian church and see what awaits you. I should have realized it just by the outside.

If you are able to try to attend the Sunday Church service. The Egyptomania abounds and the church itself is beautiful but the people of the congregation outshine them all.

Although the church was closed for tours the day we showed up, we entered the office to see if we could try to see the sanctuary. We were somewhat surprised to find that the front office lady dropped what she was doing and escorted us up the stairs to the sanctuary, informing us along the way of the church's history. Then, while we were in the sanctuary, the minister appeared and joined our discussion. Yes, check the availability of the tours but get to know the people. This church has a limited membership yet offers a Saturday meal program for the homeless and works with a non-profit to train the homeless in restaurant skills. What a pleasure to find a church where the people are just as impressive as the building!

As other mentioned, check on hours open. My group was able to get in during the First Saturday night gallery walk event in the evening.

If you are interested in early 20th century architecture, this place is a MUST VISIT! It is simply beautiful, if you can get inside to see the ornamentation.

Again, check the open time! Worth the visit and close to other downtown attractions.

I had read about this church and asked about seeing it. Building is open to the public. It is a fine example of Egyptian Revival and you would think you were in an Egyptian Temple rather than a Presbyterian Church. If you are into architectural history, you will really enjoy it. Parking can be tough.

This church is a design curiosity. It was my first view of a building with Egyptian Revival architecture. I enjoyed the colors, the shapes, and the history of the place. It's also fun to ring the 4000-lb bell. In all, it was an interesting visit.

check on the hours before you go! We were able to visit the second time. We entered on a side street. A gentleman let us in took us up the elevator and we never saw him again. Old church needs a little repair and TLC. We let ourselves out. If you enjoy visiting old churches take a moment and visit.

This is quite a little geographical oddity. The church is Egyptian themed with stained glass windows that depict scenes from the Nile. It has a long and pioneer history with Nashville back to the very first. It has been a hospital during the Civil War, a sanitarium and a place of refuge and worship for the city's elite. It really does have an amazing history and you're not gonna want to miss the architecture either.
