These girls spent about an hour with us, giving their testimony and stating their beliefs.
The mormans have done a beautiful job with Temple Square, and they have turned parts
of this god-forsaken desert into a productive and beautiful garden spot.

Flowers bloom everywhere, even on the walls!
When traveling through Utah, one must feel great admiration for what the mormans have developed in the desert.

Assembly Hall

Music, music, music! On the southwest corner of Temple Square is the Assembly Hall, a charming Gothic-style building with lovely stained-glass windows. This jewel of a building was constructed by Latter-day Saint pioneers in 1877.

Today in this historic setting, the Temple Square Concert Series presents complimentary hour-long concerts featuring local and international artists every Friday and Saturday evening. Tickets are not required, but admittance is for those eight years of age and older.
