We visited the Duke University Chapel yesterday. We were there fairly early. It was not crowded and we were able to look around at our leisure. It is a beautiful chapel. The staff that we encountered were friendly and asked if we had any questions. I'm sure it's a great place to attend church services or some other event. We did have trouble getting the pay machine in the parking lot to work and we had to go to the other end of the lot to use another machine.

BEAUTIFUL!!! If you are on Duke campus, you MUST see. It is a walk on your own visit and while we were there an organ played briefly. Stunning!!

Was there Saturday night they did a wonderful job in their concert they are just a group of beautiful people. On a second note the sound system that Duke Chapel used is horrible I really wish they would invest in a better one. The song that they did acapella without using the mics was wonderful.

I visited the chapel for the Christmas decorations that were set up in the chapel. It's an awesome experience in that it's an awesome design and I love the architecture that goes into the making of the chapel. Go there one time to see if even if you're not religious. It's something to see.

Great place to worship with plenty of opportunities to be involved at Duke and in Durham. The Music program is great with numerous concerts throughout the year. Great quiet place in the morning to meditate or pray.

Gorgeous chapel on campus! Every detail should be examined and photographed. They had a lovely Christmas service.

Awe inspiring! I grew up watching Duke basketball on television and even inspired in my youth to go here. Now being in my 40s I had a moment of deep regret not having pursued those early dreams. Amazing campus. Just walking around inspired me to want to achieve more. Cannot wait to visit again.

One of the most beautiful chapels in USA I believe. I usually tag team a trip to hear from the gardens as it is close. If you can make it inside I recommend in. Week days the chapel is usually open. It is booked in a lot of weekends for events. It is very cool to be able to walk around and enjoy the beautiful building! I highly recommend it for any one exploring durham! Make sure you see the organ as well!

Incredible landmark, it's a must see if your in the area!! Free admission open to the public, if you make advance call in you can have a chance to explore the upstairs. The architecture is jaw dropping, brick buildings and walkways, marble and wood detail throughout and amazing stained glass painted photos throughout. The service would be worth going Reeeally wish I was their to experience that!

Incredible place of worship. Truly awe inspiring. Inspired by European architecture, it’s a small cathedral type chapel that is open to anyone who would like to join in for a Sunday liturgy.

Amazing acoustics and sound. Best University chapel I've been to so far. Very calm, and relaxing place.

Chapel is a bit of an understatement. It's basically a Gothic cathedral and it's gorgeous. Played a gig there recently and was happy every time I had a moment to look around. If you like visiting cathedrals in Europe, you'll prob enjoy this.

It's beautiful. I loved the Duke Campus. The buildings have an old world charm to them. The Chapel is a true representation of the Gothic style and a treat to the eyes. A must visit. :)

It's known for being one of the largest churches around. There are several large organs there with as many as 11,000 pipes! Each stained glass window has a different picture on it, and the height of the building is magnificently impressive. If you enjoy this kind of sight seeing, it's worth stopping by if you're in the area.

Absolutely beautiful campus. We went to the botanical garden and while.ealking around decided to see the church, which has amazing architecture. After leaving there we wandered around campus a bit and the whole place is beautiful. The buildings are all very similar in style and the laws and bushes are beautifully manicured. It's a nice campus and a pretty place to walk.

Surprisingly less than 100 years old. A beautiful homage to the grand European cathedrals. Stain glass windows are. The highlight. Ornate woodworking done at a high skill level. A grand building but it does feel like a little too much of a copy of Europe. How much more stunning it would be with more 1930 touches, like art deco.

If your in the Raleigh Durham area of North Carolina then visiting Duke University is a must. Of course the Chapel is one of the star attractions. Not a lot of parking nearby. Great for photo opportunities with the family. Visitors Center is nearby also the University Store. Clean facilities. Nice staff. We will definitely be going back.
