Thursday Doors – Salt Lake Temple, Utah

I hope you enjoy my 2nd Thursday Doors project, hosted by Norm 2.0.  I had never really thought much about doors until I stumbled upon a fellow blogger’s Thursday Door submission. Doors are actually really cool!  Doors symbolize a transition from one space to another.  Doors can be closed to keep people out or opened to welcome in friends and family. Doors hold a bit of mystery because you never know what is on the other side until you open one! To check out more cool doors, or submit your own project visit Norm 2.0.

No trip to Salt Lake City, Utah would be complete without a visit to Temple Square. Whether you agree with the religious beliefs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints or not, the Salt Lake Temple is a stunning example of Gothic-inspired architecture. It took 40 years to build this! It was dedicated in 1893.

The doors are just gorgeous.

Even the kiddos, who had expressed no interest in seeing an example of beautiful architecture, were blown away by this massive building!

Tourists aren’t allowed inside the temple, so these doors are extra mysterious. There are 2 visitor’s centers in Temple Square. We decided to check out the North Visitor’s Center.  Inside, we walked up a giant spiral ramp to this 16-foot tall statue of Jesus. It was very beautiful.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:6 (NIV)
