But there are also several little sites to see that blend in or are a little off the beaten path.
Periodically, Mormon Times has printed lists of these not-so-common things to look for in and around Temple Square. Here is a compilation of those lists.
1. Meridian Marker
Location: Temple Square, outside the southeast corner
The Meridian Marker is a sandstone obelisk that serves as the legal center of Salt Lake City. The current marker is a replica of the original (now in the Church History Museum). All addresses in the valley are stated in relation to this marker.
