This building is a MUST for any LDS member or for any non LDS visitor. The 8th floor has a BEAUTIFUL view of the downtown and Temple area. Stop by for lunch on the main floor.

Administrative building with Mormon Historic value apparently there are things to see here but once again there seems to be peace wherever the Mormons are. I am impressed.

This used to be the Hotel Utah, it must have been for very influential visitors with all the luxury you see around you. Now it is a very sensitive Visitor Center for the LDS Church, a really interesting visit.

This was a fascinating building to photograph, but unfortunately on a Sunday you cannot go inside, so better to go in the week.
