Salvation Mountain as shot from a drone Niland, CA, United States Welcome to the official website of Leonard Knight's Salvation Mountain. Mountain is located in the lower desert of Southern California in Imperial County just east of the Salton Sea and about a hour and a half from Palm Springs. Salvation is Leonard's tribute to God and his gift to the world with its simple yet powerful message: "God Is Love." Leonard's passion has lovingly created this brilliant "outsider art " masterpiece resplendent with not only biblical and religious scripture such as the Lord's Prayer, John 3:16, and the Sinner's Prayer, but also including flowers, trees, waterfalls, suns, bluebirds, and many other fascinating and colorful objects. Salvation Mountain must be seen to be fully appreciated as those who have made the journey will attest. Its 50 foot height and 150 foot breadth is made totally of local adobe clay and donated paint and is truly unique in the United States and probably the world. From its Sea of Galilee at the bottom, to the big red heart in the middle, to the cross at the very top, the reoccurring theme of "Love" is everywhere at Mountain. www.salvationmountain.us Leonard Knight built Salvation Mountain over the course of 24 years. Living in a truck without heating or AC, Mr. Knight lived and breathed Salvation Mountain for a good portion of his life. Salvation Mountain is about an hour away from Borrego Palms.
