This is an amazing building right on highway 5. You will see it when you pass, you can't miss it. It looks like a beautiful castle on the hill. Make sure to take some time to stop by and walk the grounds. The grounds are beautiful as well, and it is amazing to be up close to such a beautiful... More

I got to go inside when they had open house years ago. One felt a sense of peace inside. I could see this from my master bedroom and it is just beautiful. It is not open to the public, but do go by it, it is lovely.

This is one of the most beautiful LDS temples on the inside. If you have the time and are able, we would definitely sugest spending a couple of hours hear.

I've been to see many LDS temples and this one is amazingly beautiful!! The architecture of this building is so unique and everyone there was so kind. It was wonderful to be at such a peaceful place. Thank you for making the world a better place to be.

This is one of the most peaceful places I have been to! Although you can not go inside the temple, the grounds are a sight to be seen. The beautiful flowers and plants are perfectly maintained, and the building in itself is stunning. Great place for pictures too.

I always get the creeps when I see this huge monstrosity looming over La Jolla and visible from the freeway. They baptise lists of people for the dead inside and it is a reminder of how easily people are sucked into believing myth rather than the real thing.

We where in the area for a week and kept wondering what this place was like up close, well it is a pretty awesome building and grounds and is worth the hour or so it takes to walk around.

When you're coming up the highway at night, it looks like a Disney palace - tall, white, and dramatically lit. I wish I had an opportunity to go inside, but it was closed when I was there. I did, however, spend a good long while strolling the gardens decorated for Christmas. Bulbs of every color festooned each tree branch and... More

This is a very pretty temple. We stopped by here to snap a few photos of the building and the gardens surrounding. The building looks beautiful at night as well all lit up.
