Architectural Digest gave The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints two thumbs up for two of its temple designs in a recently published article, “The Most Beautiful Places of Worship in Each State.”

The Salt Lake Temple, which is an international symbol of the LDS Church, was unsurprisingly chosen as Utah’s most beautiful worship place.

According to LDS Church information, it took 40 years to build the Salt Lake Temple, from 1853 to 1893, with walls nine feet thick at the base and six feet thick at the top.

Architectural Digest also selected the Hartford Connecticut Temple as Connecticut’s most beautiful place of worship.
