Beautiful pink blossoms surround Assembly Hall, a Victorian Gothic-style chapel on Temple Square, as seen on the Thursday evening Mormon Tabernacle Choir & Salt Lake City Tour. Located on the southwest corner of Temple Square, Assembly Hall was built in the early 1880s out of spare stone from the Salt Lake Temple's ongoing construction. It was the second permanent structure completed on Temple Square, after the Tabernacle.
