Temple Square covers 10 acres in the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah and is owned by the Mormon Church.
The square dates from 1847, when Brigham Young and his followers arrived. Today the huge space is best known for the Salt Lake Temple, which took 40 years to build and reaches a height of 222 feet. Other attractions include the Tabernacle, the home of the famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and the Victorian Gothic style Assembly Hall, which hosts concerts.
The square is also home to a visitor's center and the Seagull Monument, commemorating crops being saved in the 19th century by gulls eating swarms of crickets.Places nearby:
