This is the corner stone of the Oakland, CA Temple. It was laid in place in 1963, about a year before the temple was finished and dedicated. The golden numerals just seemed to stand out, they glowed. I loved the contrast of the golden numerals and the white sierra granite.
Being the 15th Temple constructed by the LDS church, it is one of the more unique designs and layouts for an LDS temple. It sits in the hills above Oakland and some of the best views of any where in the world. Part of that is due to the layout. There are gardens on an upper level that have lookouts that are amazing.
The temple was announce to the church in January of 1961. The groundbreaking took place in May of 1962 and was finally dedicated in November 1964 by David O. McKay. It is located on 18 Acres of land and has 95,000 square feet of floor space. It is primarily constructed of reinforced concrete with beautiful Sierra White Granite on the face. It really is one of the most peaceful places you can visit. In this world, that is so wonderful.
