 Pulgas Water Temple

Pulgas Water Temple is a stone structure built by the City of San Francisco in the 1930's as a monument to the engineering marvel that brought Hetch Hetchy water to the Bay Area. Water travel through the system more than 160 miles from the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Besides the majestic roman column temple structure, you'll also find a beautiful reflection pool lined with tall trees. You can also see the roaring aqueduct through a fence. Plugas Water Temple is a popular place for wedding ceremonies.
