Some of the statues on Temple Square:
|Joseph & Hyrum Smith (and me)|
|Restoring the Aaronic Priesthood|
|Restoring the Melchizedek Priesthood|
We took a tour of the Conference Center because we had never been there. We took some pictures but they really do not show how expansive and beautiful the building is. Our tour guide said that it is the largest public building of it's kind in the country except for sporting arenas. It holds 21,000 people in one room and you don't even get a good idea of how big it is when you watch conference on TV. That huge room where conference is held has no supporting pillars so there is nothing to obstruct the view from anywhere in the room. There is even more on each side than I was able to capture in the middle.
David O McKay is the little boy sitting on his father's lap in the right bottom corner.
There is so much more to see but I'll end for now and show you one more picture. This is the view of temple square from the top of the Conference Center.
What an AWESOME place!!!
