Beautiful building and grounds

This is a great place to visit and walk around, even if you might not be able to go inside the building.

We watched this being built as we went down the freeway from Orange County. It looked like something out of Arabian Nights and was unique to the area and one of a kind. It's been so well kept that it still looks magical to me. Nothing Disneylike about this as some contributors have said, more ethereal than commercial.

I'm guessing that this temple is the current design. Architecturally it's like a sand castle at one of those beach contests.

Very beautiful. Many weddings going on. There wasn't a visitor center so it wasn't flooded with tourists. Downside is that it's right next to freeway, so outside isn't that peaceful m.

The SD Mormon Temple is certainly striking when you pass it on the Interstate 5 freeway. The campus inside is also so beautiful and serene. I highly recommend a visit here!

I remember back when the San Diego Temple was finished and open for the period of public viewing. It is a magnificent departure from the stubby, stiff architecture that so many of the LDS temples are designed in.
