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: 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.
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.
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.
