User / Michael Locke / Wilshire Boulevard Temple, Samuel Tilden Norton, Abram M. Edelman & Davie C. Allison 1929
Michael Locke / 43,187 items
Designed in the Byzantine Revival style, the Wilshire Boulevard Temple reminds me of my own and only trip to Istanbul and visiting the Haga Sofia and other great churches and temples of Byzantium. Massive and mysterious, the interior is opulent with black marble, inlaid gold, rich mosaics, rare woods and exquisite murals depicting the history of the Hebrews (by Hugo Ballin).

The temple is located at 3663 Wilshire Blvd. (at the corner of Hobart Boulevard). It has been declared an Historic-Cultural Monument in the City of Los Angeles (No. 116) and is also on the National Register of Historic Places.
