The elegant Arizona State Capitol rests amid the cacophony of downtown Phoenix. A stirring escape into the history of the 48th state of the United States, this picture-perfect capitol building is awash in Classic Revival architectural style, topped with a gleaming copper dome. Enlisted on the National Registrar of Historic Sites, the capitol building is complete with opulent interiors. Arizona State Capitol is now synonymous with the Arizona Capitol Museum, which traces Arizona's roots as a territory and its transition to statehood. The museum houses a treasure trove of collections, exhibits, artifacts and events which lend deep insights into Arizona's rich and nuanced history and culture. The marvelous capitol is fronted by a garden birthing diverse botanic wonders, guarded by the august national flag which flutters in all its American glory.
