You'll be amazed by the beauty of the temple. It's so big. And extremely hard to fit into a photograph. The granite slabs used to build the Salt Lake City Temple were brought from the mountains. It took the Mormans 40 years to complete it. The temple is the center for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
One of the only buildings non-Mormans are allowed into is the tabernacle. The dome-shaped building was first built as an assembly hall for those of the Morman religion. The sound quality is astounding since one can hear every word spoken from the pulpit without a microphone. Eleven thousand six hundred and twenty three pipes make up one of the finest instruments in the world--the pipe organ.
Upon entering Temple Square, we saw many guides giving tours. We began to listen to one. The tour was great because it was filled with so many interesting facts. The only part I objected to was the short lecture on Mormanism and how wonderful it is. However, I respect the fact that I entered their place of worship and should be considerate.

The garden flowers change with the seasons, utilizing 50 designers and 50 planters. Those who plant the flowers and bulbs are often volunteers. My own daughter, along with her church group, was able to help plant bulbs that would bloom in spring. Fall and spring have a "down time" of less than 10 days between plantings.
While I strolled through the grounds on a Saturday afternoon, many brides and grooms posed romantically for their wedding photographers in front of the vividly-colored tulips. The Salt Lake Temple is the centerpiece of the city and a spring or summer Saturday will boast a parade of wedding parties in the square.
