Beal Rd, Calipatria, CA 92233

Salvation Mountain is a unique and colorful art installation located in the city of Calipatria, in the United States. This man-made mountain, created by local resident Leonard Knight, is a vibrant expression of his faith, featuring biblical quotes and religious symbols, all painted in bright, cheerful colors.

Visitors to Salvation Mountain can explore the Folk Art Society of America-designated National Folk Art Site, which includes the mountain itself, a large area known as the ‘Hogan’ and a series of tunnels and domes called the ‘Museum’. The mountain, made from adobe, straw, and thousands of gallons of paint, is a sight to behold, standing at over 50 feet high and 150 feet wide. The ‘Hogan’, an igloo-like structure, and the ‘Museum’, a series of interconnected domes, offer a fascinating insight into Knight’s vision and creativity.
