My aunt and uncle came to visit me in Salt Lake City! The hubs was away on a roadtrip so it was pleasant to have family stay with me! We decided to visit the Mormon Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake City.
This is what we saw as we walked towards Temple Square. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The perfect November weather to visit. It was gorgeous!!
Entrance to Temple Square
The first building we saw aside from the Visitor Center was the Assembly Hall.
The public is allowed inside the Tabernacle so in we went. This is the home of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square.
This building is a world wide icon of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the heart of Temple Square. The massive granite edifice was constructed over the course of an astounding 40-year period between 1853 and 1893.
Only members in good standing of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are permitted to enter the temple, but all visitors are welcome to admire the stunning workmanship of the building and the serene beauty of its immediate surroundings.
At the South Visitor Center we were able to see a replica of the Temple with the inside exposed.
We spent some time at the Family History Library. We did some family research. I apparently have roots going back to MacBeth King of Scotland (ABT 1010-1057), Cairpre King of Hy Kinsale in Ireland and King Nathi of Leinster in Ireland....?!?!?
Then we returned to the City Creek area. It's such a beautiful mall!!!
