Such a beautiful sight in a very nice area. Unlike anything around. Friendly people to tell about the building of and purpose of the temple. Worth a stop to walk around, take pictures and to be inspired.

Enjoy it from the outside since, unless you are Mormon, you cannot enter. Looks like Disney designed and built it, very dramatic and fantastical!

It is an iconic Church ad visible from a distance and nice premises well maintained. Nighttime building glows beautifully and a pleasure to watch.

This is amazing just for the photo op. You can’t go inside without being Mormon and having a “recommend” but the grounds are gorgeous, entrance is free, and it’s the most AMAZING building in all of San Diego. Definitely worth a stop and no, you...More
