Draper Utah Temple

Tucked away up near a canyon in Draper, Utah, is a beautiful temple. It is the Draper Utah Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS the members of the church are also known as Mormons). During the day the temple is a dominant edifice on the hillside. From the freeway in the morning you might be able to catch the sunrise complementing the building and the area round about. At night the radiant glow of the building shines like a beacon through the valley. 

There temples of the LDS throughout the world. Utah is unique because it has temple fairly close to each other. From the Draper temple you can see the Oquirrh Mountain Temple and the Jordan River Temple. Both of them are also lit up at night and are beautiful day or night. The Salt Lake Temple is also in the valley but hidden in Downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. The temples are beautiful inside and out. When a temple is built or renovated the public is invited to tour the temple as see throughout it. 

Following are some photos I took in the fall of 2013.
