An Introduction to LA's Awe-Inspiring But Little-Known Religious Centers

Tomorrow, Katy Perry and the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be back in court fighting over the future of the nun's former convent in the hills of Los Feliz. But these tenacious nuns are not the only religious order in Los Angeles—they are part of a large interfaith community of monks, nuns, swamis, and devotees who live the religious life in this city better known for its sin. Here we map some of the most notable and beautiful religious centers in the Los Angeles area, and there's not a Scientology building in sight!
