San Diego Mormon Temple

Tourists driving on Interstate-5 will see this stunning structure bearing the image of an ice sculpture. The white, palace-style building features an awesome architectural design with numerous spires. The San Diego Mormon Temple hosts religious activities for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is a 190-feet tall structure and covers 59,000 square feet. While visitors are not allowed inside the temple, they are welcome to tour the perfectly manicured grounds and admire the building`s architectural design during regular temple hours.

Located near the La Jolla community of San Diego, it has two main spires, with additional four smaller spires at the base of each main spire, making it uniquely distinctive. The East spire is topped with the Angel Moroni statue that adorns most LDS temples. The exterior finish is marble chips in stucco giving the building a white glow and when brightly illuminated makes it even more noticeable at night.
