The Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine

Map & Directions 17190 Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90272


Merchant's Description

The Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine was dedicated by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1950.

Many thousands of visitors come each year to enjoy the scenic beauty and serenity of this spiritual sanctuary. The ten-acre site, with its gardens and natural spring-fed lake, is home to a variety of flora and fauna, including swans, ducks, koi, and trees and flowers from around the world.

The grounds include a Court of Religions honoring the five principal religions of the world, the Mahatma Gandhi World Peace Memorial (pictured at the left) where a portion of Gandhi's ashes is enshrined, a museum with exhibits on Paramahansa Yogananda's work, and a gift shop with arts and crafts from India. The temple itself is on a hilltop overlooking the lake.

    Best kept secret in LA. Please respect the sanctity of the space by having your picnic at your car and NOT on the grounds, per the gardens' signage. Great place to meditate & chat with God.
