Absolutely stunning architecture! Beautiful and well maintained. The choir sounded so good you just sit in awe for a little while

It's a nice chapel, with beautiful buildings around. There was a bride and groom taking engagement photos. A must visit when you are in Sarah P Duke gardens. Yes, go and enjoy

Duke University Chapel is a must-see for anyone visiting Durham. It is a beautiful and inspiring building that is full of history and tradition. The chapel offers free tours that last about 30 minutes. Tours are available Monday through Saturday from 10am to 4pm. There's no need to rush through your visit. Take your time to explore the chapel and admire the beautiful architecture and stained glass windows.

Historic landmark great to see. The historic Gothic chapel, standing at 210 feet and on the highest ridge of Duke's campus, features pointed arches and ribbed vaults. The stained glass windows help add color into the impressive structure.

We always feel welcome at Duke University, my husband's almamater. We love to revisit the quad where he spent most of his time there. We love the library and the Chapel especially.

This iconic and historic chapel will keep you in awe, especially its architecture. I would highly recommend visiting this attraction if you're in the Raleigh- Durham area. You can park your car in nearby parking lots as there is no stopping in place in front of the chapel due to very high foot traffic.

If you haven’t been to the Duke University Chapel, it is an absolute must! This was my second visit. Growing up Catholic my mother and her family frequently visited beautiful churches around the world. She is gone now but I know she would have put this chapel at the top of the list in beauty! There is a crypt. In fact, five Duke dignitaries are buried in the basement of the chapel. Take your time and walk around. This place was meant for meditation and reflection. Check out my videos and pics. Enjoy!

This campus is beautiful at any time of the year! When I visited it originally (July 2021) the chapel was closed for visitors however just went this past weekend and it was finally open!! It’s free to tour the chapel and their is parking right next to it (pay to park). It’s free to tour the chapel and you can also go on their website to see hours where they have church.
