The Church of Scientology in Los Angeles is one of the largest in the world and it was moved to its present place in 1974.
The huge blue building once gave home to a hospital, the street on which the building stands is named after L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.

The Church also provides different courses about the Principles of Scientology and also the famous IQ and personality tests.

Close to the church you can find the museum of the anti-psychiatric institution of Scientology, it is called Psychiatry: an industry of Death.
