St. George Temple, St. George

(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Although the Salt Lake Temple in the state's capital is more famous, St. George Temple is the first Mormon temple built in Utah after the religious group arrived. The brilliant white-plaster finish on its exterior creates a striking contrast with the surrounding red sandstone buttes that provided much of the building material. Head to the visitor center to discover the story behind the Mormons' journey from Illinois to Utah and the building of this temple. You can also take a free tour of the temple to learn about its three ordinance rooms and 18 sealing rooms. Keep an eye out for the cannon on the temple grounds--Napoleon used it in his attack on Moscow, and the piece traveled through Siberia, Alaska, and California before ending up here.

  • The building "glows" in the dark. The grounds is not as big as the one in SAlt Lake City. The staff are all very friendly. We love visiting various temples and churches. Everything have its own beauty

  • Beautiful temple--white dove in the desert. First time here was for granddaughter's wedding. Sweet, peaceful feeling on the grounds. Love how the white walls stand out in contrast to the dark skies at night. Walls reflect the morning sunlight causing temple to radiate. Wonderful area to contemplate and enjoy the Spirit.
  • Beautiful Temple! Very historical. Well maintained property. The visitors center is very nice and informative with great volunteers to answer questions and guide tours.
  • Beautiful Temple, very unique. The grounds are always very well kept and have little benches and places to sit and ponder all around. It's an amazing place with a lot of history. Both day and night it sticks out as a beacon to all of St. George.
  • Such a great history behind this Temple. The St. George Temple is beautiful, and there is a serene sweet peaceful feeling here. A great place to reflect on the feelings you feel, a place of safety and security, and a very beautiful place.
  • With its green grass and blooming trees, this temple is one of the most peaceful places on the world. You can truly feel the spirit here. Surrounding yourself in white, you truly feel pure and clean. I would go here everyday if I could!
