Salt Lake Temple
The primary temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints sits in the center of Salt Lake City. Brigham Young designed the famed street numbering system for the city around the temple. The temple is at the point of origin. All addresses in Salt Lake tell you how far you are from the Temple. 600 units equals one mile. If you live on 600 East 1200 South, you are one mile east and two miles south of the Temple.
The LDS temple is one of the most visited attractions in the United States, drawing LDS faithful from around the world during conferences and other events. In recent years, the Temple grounds have sprouted a large conference center to the north, and a walking plaza (formerly main street) to the east. The area adjacent to the LDS Temple are currently undergoing a massive rennovation.
