Create an itinerary including St. George Temple
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 temple is under renovation and slated to open in Nov 2022. You can still see how magnificent the temple is. We toured the visitor center and learned a great deal.

  • The St. George temple is my favorite! It's beautiful! The grounds are very beautiful, as well, and so well kept. I had such a peaceful feeling as I walked around and looked at the beautiful temple.

  • This is one of the most spectacular sacred structures I have ever seen. It's exterior beauty silently speaks of spiritual serenity and you can just tell that important things go on inside. What a majestic addition to the pretty city of St George.
  • They gave our group a great tour of the visitors center. They even opened it up a little early to accommodate us. It was a fun tour and they were very kind to take us around.
  • Thank you Elser Tippettes for the incredible answers. I love the Church of Latter Day and their ideas and take on religious standings
  • Still under construction but still an exciting place to come to. So much history and so impressive to see the craftsmanship of old still standing strong. Obviously needed some updating but all in all a house built upon a firm foundation stands the test of time. I am so looking forward to entering it when it reopens in November 2022. The Visitor Center however is open as of April 1st and that is not an April fools joke. It truly is open and has some wonderful exhibits for everyone. I will definitely be back and look forward to it.
  • Beautiful experiance.. watched the movie in the visitors center called the craftsman . absolutely recommend
