  • The most beautiful part of the entire Salt Lake. The gardens are so pretty and they take care about every little detail. There are places to take photos and learn about the history of the building.  more »
  • My daughters and I took a tour of the grounds and temples (free of charge and provided in several languages). The history of the faith of Mormons was interesting. The sisters were exceptionally polite...  more »

  • Beautiful, and very peaceful place. We only had about 1-2 hour to soak in the AWESOMENESS but it was enough to enjoy the grounds and review some church history. The visitors center closed early but we were able to walk around the grounds until 10pm. We than walked to get late night good at the Cheesecake factory. It was a wonderful experience. Next time we will also visit the Catholic Cathedral that was nearby.
  • This is a beautiful place. There is such a special feeling walking around the temple grounds and the gardening in immaculate. The Grounds are very well kept and the visitors center is informative and nice. Also the missionaries are friendly and helpful. Try to go around Christmas! The lights are BEAUTIFUL.
  • A must stop when visiting salt lake. Beautiful grounds to explore any time of year. Great sculptures fountains and flower gardens. The nearby visitors center is a great spot to learn about Utah history and The Church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. Fantastic Christmas lights display around the holidays.
  • I would recommend ALL people to come and experience the majesty of this beautiful temple. The outside inspires awe and wonder. Over 100 years ago, Mormon pioneers came to this place, and built this building. They toiled and labored many long years to build this structure by hand. I would recommend all come and see what devotion these Latter Day Saints put into such an amazing structure built to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
  • "Hearts must be pure to enter in these walls Where spreads a feast unknown to festive halls. Freely partake, for freely God hath given, And taste the Holy joys that tell of Heaven. Here learn of Him who triumphed o'er the grave, And unto men the keys, the Kingdom gave; Joined here by powers that past and present bind The living and the dead perfection find." - Elder Orson F. Whitney
