  • Beautiful area, winter was chilly, but bundle up and go earlier than you'd think because you can spend hours here checking out the sights at Temple Square. The visitor's center is a great place to learn about what temples are and why they are built. Talk to the guides here and they'll tell you what's cool to visit.
  • The Salt Lake Temple is magnificent both inside and out. It was built over a 40 year period by Mormon pioneers. It is immaculately maintained and staffed by kindly workers. Truly is the House of the Lord.
  • The Salt Lake Temple is the GEM of UTAH and an abosulute must-see for anyone visiting Salt Lake City. The phenomenal architecture and gorgeous lighting is particularly remarkable at night. The visitors center just south of the Temple details the history and construction of the Temple. The Temple grounds are also stunning with amazing gardens and flowers in the Spring and Summer, beautiful Autumn colors in the Fall, and stunning Christmas lights in the winter. Entry to the grounds is free. To enter the Temple a person must be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and practice religious standards.
  • The Salt Lake City temple is amazing, both inside and out. One of my favorite places to visit when I'm in Utah, and one that I love to visit with friends, family, or by myself.
  • Beautiful building. We were only allowed on the outside, understandably. Less stars because of the missionaries.
