Upon walking in, you feel like you are in Europe. The large stone structure with its beautiful stained glass windows are reminiscent of the great cathedrals overseas. There was no one inside when we were there, so we were able to walk around at our...More

While on your walking tour of the campus be sure to stop in to see the beautiful chapel. It can sometimes be closed for weddings so just beware. Beautiful stained glass windows and magnificent interior!

I went here for a funeral so it was a very solemn occasion. However, this is a "heavenly" place, rich in history. Try to see it at a time other than going to a funeral service.

They call it a chapel, but felt more like a mini cathedral. The color of the glass glimmered and the sun streamed in .

The Princeton University Chapel was built between 1924-28, and is the third largest college chapel in the world. Gothic in design, it seats 2,000, defying the premise of a small intimate college chapel, but yet due to its vast size, inspires silence upon entering as...More

When in Princeton, make the time to go there. The architecture and the stained glass are very similar in style to larger cathedrals in many towns in Europe. Definitely worth the time to pay a visit. There are several statues around campus that you might...More

Hard to believe that this church is on the campus of a university. Just an architectural gem. Great stained glass. Please be sure to stop in even if you aren't religious.

it is pretty, it has that historical feel. An ecumenical church so almost everyone is welcome to pray. There was only one person in the church that day, so he explained to us what kind of church it is.

I just wish I could attend it for service or choir presentation. I could only stay there for 5 minutes for a time of prayer. It is superb, wonderful.

If we're talking about the same glass windows, one of the images is that of Melchizidek, who was the first priest of The Bible. We find Melchizidek early on in the Old Testament, where Moses gives a great donation to him... More

There is an audio tour of the chapel available online. I agree with the person who suggested a search. I'm not allowed to post the link.
