The church is beautiful with a reflecting pool at the front. Imagine this building was built with every piece of stone chiseled by hand, transported manually to the building site, and erected with very limited machinery. It is indeed an architectural masterpiece.

Not much to see since it is not open for tours. Can only admire from exterior. Best view is from above at The Roof restaurant.

The Salt Lake temple is an amazing structure. Built between 1853 and 1893 from the solid granite found in the mountains close by. There are carvings in the stone that have symbolic meaning that can be inspiring. It is not open to the public and...More
