“Don't go out of your way... Over-rated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2009

Here's the reality: Nice building but looks like every other LDS Temple Compound in every other city in the world. If you're driving by, stop and take a picture. If not, you're not missing anything.

This is an LDS Temple, which means you can't go in and see anything interesting unless you are a card-carrying member (they're called RECOMMEND cards). Don't have one? You don't get to see anything.

If you're in the neighborhood, admire from outside, but don't linger too long because you might miss something truly wonderful in San Diego!

“Awesome edifice-truly a sacred place to visit-well maintained, beautiful...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2007

San Diego LDS Temple- simply a must see on any vacation or visit to San Diego! It's absolutely beautiful and spectacular! Beautiully landscaped and well maintained site. We experienced a very peaceful and relaxing feeling while walking the grounds. There were friendly people greeting us and nobody tried to convert us or anything like that. It was truly a great visit and experience. I'd recommend this stop to all!
