    Temple Square. The Mormon´s Temple

    by crazyguitar Written Dec 14, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The main Mormon´s headquater around the world. They prefer to be called as memebers of "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" instead of mormons.
    The architecture is great, the temple looks like a tale castle, isn´t it?
    Unfortunately you are not allow to enter inside, just mormons can enter.

    Favorite thing: Take a tour around Temple Square. It really is interesting to see the architecture of the buildings. The tours, although conducted by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, is totally non-commital. They show your around and explain about the religion without trying to force you into anything.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory of SLC can only be how clean the city was. I was amazed that the city authorities have laid out so much money on making their city pleasing to the tourists eye.

    Favorite thing: Explore Temple Square. The most impressive building inside Temple Square is the 210 foot high Temple. On top of the tallest spire is a golden statue of the angel Moroni, who appeared to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) founder, Joseph Smith. Built between 1853 - 1893, the Temple is closed to everybody except practicing Mormons engaged in secret religious ceremonies. Even if you aren't interested in the Mormon religion, a visit is still worthwhile for the architecture and culture.

    Favorite thing: just walk around Temple Square. There is something about Salt Lake that is very special. It is a sprawled city with a 'town' feel. The people are friendly and there is a sense of innocence about the place. And then the awesome nature!

    Fondest memory: Visiting old friends. It is as if time stands still there (and I don't see that as negative). My friends seem to have a different goal in life than just making money and fullfilling their career path. They are just intensely happy with simple things. It's a joy to see and a great lesson to learn.
