A temple tour of California

I have been reading Erik Davis's fantastic (in all senses of the world) book The Visionary State: A Journey Through California's Spiritual Landscape, illustrated with lucious photos by Michael Rauner.

You can read an excerpt on Davis's Web site.

I know just few of the Bay Area places, such as the San Francisco Zen Center (didn't know it was a Julia Morgan building though) or the Swedenborgian Church. I want to just jump in the car with the book and a road map and find the rest.

Of course, they had to draw the line somewhere, but this story makes me think that maybe the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Library should have included with some of the other shrines.
