Newport Beach California Mormon Temples

Located near the University of California, Irvine, the Newport Beach California Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sits on nearly nine acres of rolling hills in a quiet residential neighborhood. An adjacent meetinghouse shares the property. The beautifully groomed grounds include hundreds of trees, thousands of plants and a pair of water fountains. These features create a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere for those who come to seek refuge from the busy world.

The architectural design is modeled after the early Spanish missions of the western United States and Mexico, with copper domes and a series of archways. The exterior is composed of Salisbury pink granite mined in North Carolina and fabricated in Italy and China. While this color differs from those used in many of the Church’s temples, it fits well with the surrounding architecture of the community. The angel Moroni, a feature found on many Mormon temples, rests on a cupola. The temple is 17,800 square feet with a 90-foot steeple.
