This Mormon temple, located in West Los Angeles near Century City and UCLA, is one of the largest and most important outside Utah.
The Mormons may not number much in California compared to other religious groups, but their organization and wealth make them key players in state politics. Their ground-level organizing proved crucial in 2008 as California re-banned gay marriage by passing Proposition 8.
