Oakland California Temple


The Oakland California Temple is the 13th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is the only LDS temple built with a modern five-spire design and exhibits an Oriental motif. From the temple grounds and terrace are views of the Bay Area, including downtown Oakland, the Bay Bridge, Yerba Buena Island, downtown San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. The grounds are accented by flowers, palm trees, and a formal-style man-made river running from one fountain to the other.
