50/50.- San Francisco, Vedanta temple


In this picture you see one of the most intriguing buildings in town: Vedanta temple, corner of Webster and Filbert St.

The Vedanta Society of Northern California was founded in 1900 as the highest of the six Hindu systems of religious philosophy. Built in 1905 by architect Joseph A. Leonard, the temple was inspired by the ideal of inclusiveness of this spiritual order. From Edwardian, Queen Anne, Colonial to Medieval, Oriental style elements this building gives you a sense of universality and aesthetic exotism.

The streets, the hills, the stylish homes, the manicured gardens offer so much charm and visual wonders that before knowing we arrived at the end of the Pacific Heights neighborhood, and at the end of our Photographic Tour of cosmopolitan San Francisco.

There is still a lot to discover and experience in San Francisco, the city by the Bay. Maybe you wish to see it for yourself.

If you visit California, you should not miss either Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Big Sur, Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon National Park, San Diego, and Tijuana!
