San Diego Mormon Temple
Tourists driving along Interstate-5 will not miss this stunning structure, bearing the image of an ice sculpture. The white, palace-style building features an awesome architectural design with numerous spires. The temple, which hosts religious activities for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is 190-feet tall and covers 59,000 square feet. While visitors are not allowed inside the temple, guests are welcome to tour the perfectly manicured grounds and admire the building's architectural design during regular temple hours.
Looks nice and all, but it's not a good use of space for the area. it's becoming an eyesore and it's a huge waste of resources (land, water, electricity).
This land would be better used as medium-income housing for the many college students and young professionals who need to work in the area. The area is too metropolitan for structures which waste that much space without providing anything in return (parking, housing)
When you drive up to this building you will probably think it looks like Sleeping Beauty's castel or something. It is very gorgeous. The grounds ahve a very calm and peaceful feeeling about them. You don't need to go inside to have a wonderful expirience there. I recomend jsut stopping by and looking around. Its almost like a bit of heaven on earth.
The temple grounds are very pretty and open to anyone. Lots of green grass and beautiful flowers. It's beautiful, even if you can't go inside. There are church representatives that can show you pictures of the inside. It's very interesting.
