Spirituality may not be the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of Los Angeles, but the sprawling western city is home to an interesting variety of places of worship. Along with movie stars and Disneyland, Los Angeles offers some unique and striking church architecture, several Asian temples, and the centers of new religious movements like the Church of Scientology.
Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels
Completed in 2002, this modern Catholic cathedral is the third-largest in the world. It is a fine example of modern religious architecture and contains many notable artworks.
Church of Scientology Headquarters
The original Church of Scientology is located just off Sunset Boulevard in a former hospital building. Here you can take classes in Dianetics and clear your thetans through Auditing.
