RootsTech 2016 ~ Photos of Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah

In a previous post, I shared photos from our genealogy bloggers meetup lunch at the Blue Lemon restaurant.

After lunch, I went across the street and took pictures at Temple Square. It's so beautiful there!

The gorgeous and historic Salt Lake Temple behind some trees. This beautiful temple took 40 years to complete.


Snow on the tree branches.





The Assembly Hall. This beautiful Gothic-style building was built between 1877 and 1882.


I took this picture because the Assembly Hall's reflection is on the Deseret Book Company building across the street.


The Handcart Pioneer Monument. It's near the Assembly Hall. You can see where it is on Temple Square in the photo above.



The Tabernacle. This beautiful building has amazing acoustics. A pin dropped at the pulpit can be heard in the back of the hall.


The Salt Lake Temple behind the reflecting pool.


I went to the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and took some pictures inside. This gorgeous building used to be known as the Hotel Utah. It served as a hotel for 76 years.


The beautiful lobby.







The stunning chandelier and stained glass ceiling in the lobby.




 A statue of the Prophet Joseph Smith on Temple Square.


Pictures of snow around Temple Square.





I hope you enjoyed these photos of Temple Square. It truly is a beautiful place.

Thanks for reading!

    1. You're welcome Jeanne! Oh yes, I hope you do go see Temple Square in person. It's gorgeous! Among the things to do at Temple Square are free organ recitals in the Tabernacle, free tours around Temple Square including the Beehive House, Conference Center, etc. and there are two beautiful Visitors Centers. :)
