Botanical Gardens & Flowing Fountain
Come visit the highly-rated botanical gardens at the Rome Temple. Visitors are welcome and admission is free. Our professional gardeners take exceptional care to make sure these sacred grounds are well cared for and look beautiful for all who come.
The gardens include a vast variety of flowers and trees, including Roman umbrella pines preserved from the original site on which the Temple was built, and four olive trees that range in age from 400-500 years old, and though not original to the site, give a symbolic accent to the piazza.
A fountain flows down the steps of the Travertine stone square, starting from the base of the temple down to the Visitors’ Center on the opposite end of the Piazza. As the water flows from the House of the Lord to the Christus statue it provides a striking symbol of Jesus Christ as the living water.
Individuals and families are welcome to come and stroll in the gardens, spending time with family and friends, or simply to enjoy the scenery.
As you walk around the Rome Temple Grounds you will find many opportunities for great photos, so make sure your smartphone is fully charged!
