"Essential for the Visitor!"
It is impossible to visit Salt Lake City without being aware of it's home as the spiritual centre of the Church of Latter Day Saints. W N Temple, as its name suggests, is one of the best kept thoroughfares in the state, and bisects the heart of '1 Mormon Central', with the impressive granite edifice of the temple itself dominating. The domed tabernacle is also impressive, home of the renowned choir, and permanent visitor centres exist to give the casual visitor an insight into the history and mission of the church. I am told that temple square is a sight to behold at christmas time - will let you know in January when i get back!
