The Manti Utah Temple
Arguably the most beautiful of the pioneer temples, the Manti temple is a near twin to the Logan Temple, on the outside only the upper towers are different. Also, the open center spiral staircases are a miracle of 19th Century engineering and are extremely rare, and beautiful. The yearly Manti Pagent, which reinacts scenes from the Book of Mormon and Church History, takes place on the south hill of the temple.
