Temple square is one of Salt Lake Cities biggest attractions that at least 5 million people annually venture here to see the beautiful Cathedral, Gardens, Tabernacle, and to learn what inspired the Mormon Poineers to make this their home. On July 24, 1847 Brigham Young looked down into a great salt lake valley and declared, "This is the right place." By sheer will and their strong faith in God, they Mormon poineers had to endure the hardship of the isolated and arid spot to make it what it is today, Salt Lake City.
They fought hard to irrigate the desert to grow enough food for themselves. The square consist of the Temple which took 40 years to complete. The Tabernancle that seats 6,500 and it's domed roof is the largest in the world. There are two vistor center that display religious and historical aspects of Mormon life, a beautiful assembly hall used for large gatherings, and the Log Cabin, the oldest house in Salt Lake City. Very impressive and a must see.

The temple is used by Church members for marriages and other sacred ordinances designed to strengthen families, both now and for eternity. The east center tower is 210 feet high and is topped by the statue of an angel heralding the restoration to the earth of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the latter days.
You know I have found many people that are somewhat suspicious of this religion. And that is ok because everyone is entitled to their opinion. Yet, for me the one huge thing that stands out for me is they remind me of ALL OF US. We all want freedom and the right to worship what we want too. They have proven that America is their country and have made many sacrifices for her!
