What is the name of the Mormon cathedral in the Great Salt Lake?

The Great Salt Lake is a lake - there are no buildings in it, because it's a lake, and people typically don't build buildings underwater. Also, Mormons (members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) do not build Cathedrals. They have two types of worship buildings - temples and meetinghouses. Maybe you are asking about the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City. Salt Lake City is named after the Great Salt Lake but is located about 20 miles southeast of the lake. That temple is simply called the Salt Lake Temple. Most Mormon temples are named for the city they are in. There are also several cathedrals in Salt Lake City representing many different religions.
