San Diego LDS temple to shine like new

As many La Jolla residents may have noticed, one of the area’s most prominent landmarks on the east side of I-5 is undergoing some changes. The snow-white, ethereal-looking San Diego temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) has been surrounded by scaffolding for the last five months to facilitate an intricate refurbishing project that should leave the site gleaming like never before.

A popular tourist attraction and visitor site, the 72,000-square-foot temple was dedicated on April 30, 1993 as the 45th temple erected by the Latter-day Saints worldwide.
