    Salt Lake Mormon Temple Tour Salt Lake Mormon Temple

    This towering edifice is the famous landmark centerpiece of Temple Square. Construction of the Mormon Temple was begun in 1853 and not completed until forty years later when the capstone was lowered in place (1892). It was built of granite blocks that were individually hauled by ox teams until a railroad line was later completed. Since then other significant buildings were added. The tallest spire is capped with a large gold-leaf statue of the angel Moroni which has special meaning in the faith.
    The temple is considered to be a most holy place in the Mormon religion. As such a lot of attention and resources are contributed to its design, construction and interior furnishings. However, due to its sacred nature, it is closed to the public, admission is allowed only for faithful church members. Today it is used is for performing weddings, baptisms for the dead other important family blessings. (On Fridays and Saturdays you can see a lot of wedding parties leaving the temple.)

    (The only time public admission is ever granted to any Mormon Temple is when the church holds Open House prior to dedication of a newly completed structure.)
