Temple Square

I knew there would be a large temple in Temple Square, but I was surprised to discover the square is part of a larger campus for the Mormon Church. The free visitor’s center provided a nice overview of the temple’s architecture and construction, and a brief introduction to the religion. While the other buildings nearby are pretty, the towering Salt Lake Temple really commands your attention. Stopping in front of the reflecting pool, surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of flowers, it’s easy to forget that office buildings and city traffic are just a block away. (Seriously, so many flowers.)
