  • I am a Methodist but I wanted to see the Mormon Tabernacle. The grounds were beautiful. I enjoyed the art and the history. The Mormon ambassadors on site we're very polite, knowledgeable and pleasant. It was a good experience.
  • What a beautiful building! At one point in time the most prominent building, not only in Slay Lake City, but in the whole valley. Now it's almost hidden in the mist of the many building in Salt Lake City's centre. Although it can not be visited unless you belong to the LDS Church, walking around this imposing structure will give you a feeling of admiration for those who built it, specially as you observe the many details on the granite walls.
  • The grounds are always immaculate and the trees are beautiful. All of the ponds add to the scenery. The temple itself is amazing to look at and is a very fitting center piece to temple square.
  • Can't think of a better place to experience Salt Lake City. Walk around the grounds (visitors cannot enter the temple itself) and enjoy the beautiful gardens and architecture. The visitor centers are filled with helpful staff. Wonderful place to visit
  • A place of faith, finding, and forgiveness. The building itself is an architectural marvel and the ability to be welcome and pray in such a serene surrounding is why I love living in this city so much. The tourists don't even bother me! Most are respectful and come during predictable hours.
