|In front of
the Temple there was a continuous line of
picture-taking apointments at the time of my
visit (below). There is a lot of
marrying going on in Salt Lake City right now!
Close by is also this administrative palace,
which is modestly called the "office
building" (right). My
camera failed in the attempt to get the entire
building on my memory chip.
In the Mormon faith the connection to one's own
family members, living or dead, plays an
important role. Thus family history research is a
firm tenet of their religion. How seriously this
is taken is shown by the establishment of over
3400 family history centers worldwide. Their main
hub was the destination of my side trip to Utah.
It borders on Temple Square and looks rather
plain from the outside (bottom right).
