LOST Tour: The Temple

Our final stop in Paradise Park was the set which served as the entrance to the the Others' temple. As with several other cases like the 4-toed statue and the lighthouse, the temple was a combination of practical outdoor plus a CGI set extension.

The pond in front of the temple is real and was still present during our visit.

Unfortunately an offshoot cult of mirror-Sulu fans have spray-painted "Oh my" on the temple's second level.

Everyone in our tour group patiently waits their turn for a photo op at the temple door.

Times are hard -- the temple gardener and lawn maintenance teams have been let go.

This is the pond in front on the temple. As I've gone through episodes picking out screen shots I am always amazed at how the choice of camera lens, filter and placement can increase the grandeur of a location or set.

The exit from the underground tunnels that lead from the outer perimeter to the temple is also located in this area.
