Salt Lake City in Utah, USA: Salt Lake City Temple.

The Salt Lake City Temple is located on Temple Square. It is the centerpiece of Salt Lake City and the most iconic symbol of the Mormon Religion who founded the Salt Lake Valley. The Temple took 40 years to complete. During the Utah War (1857-1858), the foundation was buried under dirt to prevent unwanted attention.

The temple combines Romanesque and Gothic elements. The top of the temple is adorned with a golden statue of the Angel Moroni who, according to Mormon History, showed the founder of Mormonism where secret golden plates were buried.
