About

The legendary Beatle, John Lennon, was photographed in the Temple of Love in this park on March 28, 1975, by famed rock and roll photographer Bob Gruen. See, for ex., http://blog.classicist.org/?attachment_id=4973. A brochure for the park describes the Temple of Love this way: "This stunning cantilevered temple was the centerpiece of an extensive series of rock gardens. Waterfalls cascaded down and through the rocks to the pool below, and the whole structure was elaborately planted." We visited it a few times and of course took pictures of ourselves standing as Mr. Lennon did. This Untermyer estate, now a conservancy, is fascinating. Some of it is well kept and beautiful, and even the ruins are captivating.

The photo was taken around the spot where John Lennon was photographed.

I was at this site a few days ago. It is being renovated. The pillars have been recast and the dome has been painted. The rocks are being reset, and the fountains are being repaired.

I was at this site on 11/24/16, and saw that quite a bit of restoration has been completed, and water is running in the pools below the Temple of Love.
