  • It’s straight up a cult! Read The CES Letter. I was a member for 35 years, and I’m thankful every day that I got out.

  • A reverent and sacred experience. There are no tours to visit inside the temple. But they do have two visitors centers which explain so much. The south visitors center has a model of the interior of the temple, which I highly recommend. The north visitors center has tours of temple square which is a must. Plan a few hours and enjoy the flowers too.
  • A sacred place where worthy members of The Church of Jesus Christ are able to be sealed together as families and where they can perform sacred ordinances like baptism and family dealings on behalf of those who have died. You can feel close to God here, and receive revelation from Him here. It is beautiful inside and out, and the blessings available here are the most beautiful.
  • Really peaceful place! Great views of historical buildings and lots to do and learn. There are free tours available. Photo taking is allowed. Look for the two women wearing name tags and they will be super helpful and give the tours. Also the mall is across the street which is handy for lunch or snacks.
  • The history and beauty of this building is astounding. The grounds, the exterior, and the delicate, intricate detail put into everything blows me away. No wonder it took 40 years to build, every detail is perfect. Just standing in the grounds outside, you can feel the spirit of the pioneers who traveled hundreds of miles on foot for the chance to visit it.
  • I was amazed at how much I enjoyed Temple Square! It’s just beautiful! Make sure and visit the genealogy museum; LDS has the largest library in the world! Hey I’m related to Elvis, very distant, but still who knew!? I highly recommend this!
