One of My Favorite Places To Go...

The Salt Lake Temple is the largest temple (most square footage). It took 40 years to build with its highly ornate interior being completed in just a year. The Salt Lake Temple was completed the afternoon before the dedication. That evening, invited non-Mormon government officials, business, and their wives were given a complete tour of the temple. It was the first time that a temple had been opened to the public prior to its dedication.The Salt Lake Temple was dedicated on April 6, 1893—three years before Utah became a state in 1896.
