Pulgas Water Temple

Local namePulgas Water Temple
LocationCalifornia, USA

The Pulgas Water Temple is a stone structure west of I-280 at 86 Cañada Road, Woodside, California, United States, designed by architect William G. Merchant. It was erected by the San Francisco Water Department to commemorate the 1934 completion of the Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct and is located at the aqueduct's terminus. In 1938, the original water temple was replaced with the current design.

The water temple consists of fluted Corinthian columns arranged in a circle, upon which a large stone masonry ring with the words "I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people " are inscribed. There is a large, tree-lined reflecting pool to the east. The water temple grounds can be rented for weddings or special events.
