Restaurant to Another World, an anime series where a Tokyo restaurant transports to a world of dragons, elves, and other mythical creatures, depicted the Salt Lake Temple as the "home of the gods."

The temple is highlighted in episode five after a half-elf, half-human princess struggling to find her place in her world is faced with the decision to leave her world behind and live in the service of the gods or find another path.

Though its appearance was brief, it's interesting the temple was featured as a fictional sacred place when it is also a real-life place of holiness.
