While a Hindu temple is probably not the first thing most folks think of when planning a trip to sunny southern California, this lovely spiritual mountain retreat offers fabulous views and a peaceful getaway when LA hustle and bustle has just become too much to deal with. Built in 1981, this temple to the Hindu god Venkateswara is a working temple with priests living on the grounds, and it is frequented by Southern California's Hindu population. Practitioners of all faiths, however, can enjoy the stellar scenery and local hiking. The temple grounds also have meditation rooms, great picnicking spots, and a stage for special programs.
