ISABEL ANGELL: I’ve lived my whole life in the Bay Area, specifically the East Bay. When I was little, I remember seeing a castle up in the Oakland Hills, and my mom told me it was the Mormon Temple. Growing up in a non-religious household, that didn’t mean a lot to me, but I thought it was the prettiest thing I’d ever seen.
The spectacularly lit Mormon Temple in the Oakland Hills has been a fixture in the East Bay skyline for over almost fifty years. As part of our place profiles series, KALW's Isabel Angell decided to see what the temple looked like up close.
