I love the architecture of this LDS Temple. The grounds are kept impeccable. The missionaries are always so kind to share the history of the temple.

I'm not a LDS but I'd say that the San Diego temple is magically lit for Christmas. The grounds are open to the public during the evening & worth the visit.

Driving north or south along I-5 in San Diego allows for a spectacular view of the magnificent structure. It is a magnificent building and of great importance to members of the Latter day Saints Church. On a sunny day, it absolutely glows!!

Here is the phone number (858) 622-0991 to the San Diego Temple. If you have any questions, they are always so nice and helpful. There is usually someone on the temple grounds that can answer your questions as well.
