“Gorgeous!”

San Diego Mormon Temple
Ranked #12 of 76 things to do in La Jolla
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 11, 2012

The San Diego Temple is one of the most beautiful temples! It is an amazing site to see as you are driving on the I-5. It is definitely worth a stop to take pictures and walk around the gorgeous grounds. Although due to the sacredness of the temple, those who are not Mormon/LDS cannot go inside, but there is a visitor's center where all visitors are welcome to learn more about the LDS faith.

It is absolutely beautiful. I had the opportunity to visit before it was closed to non-Mormon's.

Even if you aren't LDS, this beautiful building and grounds is a must see in the area. Take a look as you drive past on the I5 but get off on Nobel drive and stop to walk around. Lovely and calm.

This building is the epitome of gaudiness. It is a huge, Gothic, bright white monstrosity, imo. It doesn't fit with any of the architecture in the area, and is thus an eyesore, especially being that it is on the edge of a major road, where the sight of it can not be avoided. I wonder that the city planners ever okayed such a building. The landscaping is nice around it, but that was all that I liked in its appearance. I did not go inside. This is just a review of its exterior.

When traveling around the world one of the more enjoyable experiences is to go and visit the great religious buildings that help define an area or people. A window into their culture if you will. Of course touring the building, inside and out is critical to this experience and is expected. Unfortunately, you cannot go inside this Mormon Temple and I believe this is a missed opportunity for the Mormon Church who will disappoint visitors who have been to similar religious buildings throughout the rest of the world and been welcomed inside. There are nice gardens to look at, but not worth going a great distance out of your way to see.
