Visit the newly renovated
Oakland Temple

For the first time in 55 years, the public was invited to tour the newly renovated Oakland California Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The open house has ended but the public is always welcome to visit the beautiful temple grounds, enter the visitor’s center, and learn more about our Savior Jesus Christ.

Learn more about the Oakland Temple Rededication as well as other upcoming temple dedications around the world.


What is a temple?

Temples are literally houses of the Lord. They are holy places of worship where individuals make sacred covenants with God. People find opportunities for peaceful reflection and for learning more about God’s plan of happiness.

What is the Church of Jesus Christ ?

Often called “Mormons,” we believe first and foremost that Jesus Christ is our savior and redeemer. We believe that through Him all humankind may enjoy eternal life with their families in God’s kingdom (see John 3:16).
