Lake Shrine and Gardens

shrine reflelcted in lakeOne of the beautiful places we visited in Southern California was the Lake Shrine at Pacific Palisades. It features a peaceful lake, meditation gardens, and a memorial to Mahatma Gandhi. There are symbols and signs honoring five major religions of the world.

On a hill above it is a temple which we did not go to but perhaps we will tour it on a future trip to California. Certainly the lake is worth another visit.
