Temple is a middle-income neighborhood. The area is characterized by low-rise buildings, with the notable exception of a residential skyscraper located in the northeast of the district, on the corner of Mulholland Drive and Market Boulevard. Many businesses are also located here. Although there is gang activity in Temple, their presence is less prominent than in the eastern districts of the city.
Temple was ever a stronghold for the Temple Drive Families set of the Grove Street Families, which was an enemy of the Grove by the time Carl Johnson returned to Los Santos. Later on the game, both sets were united again and fought together in a war against the Ballas at the Mulholland Intersection, which resulted in the arrest of GSF leader Sweet Johnson and the full on decline of the GSF. Temple fell into Ballas hands halfway through the game and after the mission Home Coming, the player can acquire Temple as a GSF territory again. The Ballas set found in the Temple area after The Green Sabre are the Temple Drive Ballas.

- The smallest gang turf is in Temple, which is on a 24-7. As expected the territory is extremely hard to obtain. One good method is to get inside the shop, exit it and there may be some Ballas driving their cars that can be killed to start a gang war.
