Beautiful Experience with no "cramming"
May 2020
Had to park a ways away because parking lot was full when we went. So many beautiful photo ops available. The grounds are beautiful and the workers are so nice and helpful. Nobody crams info down your throats like some have said. They are helpful if you have questions. Beautiful experience.

Beautiful grounds for a walk and quiet moments of mindfulness
Dec 2019
Although only members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints can enter this building, anyone is welcome to walk around the grounds here. It is a serene place for thoughtful contemplation regardless of your religious beliefs. Christmas time is a nice time to visit with Christmas lights. Not sure if that will be the case due to Covid-19 this year.

Beautiful Building
Mar 2020 • Couples
Such beautiful architecture! The Temple is spotted from the freeway and grabs your attention. It is free to park inside and walk around the building. You can take pictures. Nobody approaches you about religion. Just go and enjoy the beauty and landscaping.

Beautiful Temple of God
Feb 2020 • Couples
We attended a wedding at the gorgeous Temple for our grand daughter. The building is awe inspiring and serene on the inside and the spirit of the Lord is felt within these walls. The exterior is exquisite and the grounds are immaculately groomed. It was as exceptional experience!

Beautiful building!
Feb 2020
The San Diego California Temple can be seen from the I-5 freeway coming from either direction and it almost appears to be floating in the air. Even though only qualified members of the church can enter the temple, anyone can visit the site and stroll the well-kept grounds. Its architecture can rightly be considered a work of art.
Here is an interesting anecdote -- We were crossing the border returning from Tijuana and the border agent asked where we were going now. When we mentioned the San Diego Temple, she exclaimed, "Oh, that's the beautiful building that my daughter calls the Ice Castle from the movie Frozen".

Spectacular edifice
Oct 2019
It was great to see this architectural wonder. Glistening, the multitude of spires, two main ones, are magnificent.

Tranquil grounds are part of the campus. We enjoyed strolling throughout gazing at the ever- changing vistas of the church.

Iconic Sight
Jun 2019
What an iconic sight! The Mormon Temple dominates the skyline in the UCSD area of I-5. The white spires shine both day and night as they are lit up after dark. Although entrance is restricted, outside viewing of this church and the surrounding gardens is possible.
