Temple & Church Office Building

This is the Church Office Building. Granted I am standing closer to the Office Building than the Temple, but the Office Building still towers way above the Temple.
This may show the priorities of the Mormons. I believe it was once law that no building in the area could surpass the height of the Temple.
This Office Building is now the second tallest building in Salt Lake City at 420 feet. The Salt Lake Temple is only 222 feet tall. Construction on the Office Building started in 1962 and continued for 10 years.
