(Disclaimer: I am am member of the LDS church, so the Kirtland temple has huge significance for me) We spent several hours at the temple site and touring the temple. Even though we were the last tour of the evening, the guide took his time, was eager to share his knowledge, and didn't make us feel rushed at all. Learned... More

We were given a wonderful tour by a member of the Community of Christ Church. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the early saints and the sacrifices they went to in their goal to build a House of the Lord. How grateful we are that this property has been preserved.

I was surprised to find this on the main road in Kirtland. Thought it would be in a more private place. Nonetheless, it is beautiful and I congratulate the Church of Christ for taking such great care of it. Our tour guide was well informed about the history of Kirtland and the temple's purpose.

The Temple is awe inspiring. It is so beautiful and has a wonderful feeling inside. It is an important spot in American history. I would recommend it to anyone who is able to visit. Warning -there are a lot of steep steps to climb if you go beyond the ground floor.

I've always wanted to visit a Mormon temple. This is their first one. It's now being used more as a community center, with various events and programs, but it still affords one with ideas of what the Mormons value/how they see the world. You take a guided tour, which is a good idea. I found very very interesting the movie... More

For historic reasons its worth the trip , the temple is in great shape and has so much history to it , its also beautiful. Now as a LDS member it was a spiritual day to know the Saviour was there , the Keys that were handed down there it was overwhelming. I loved it!!!

Wonderfully restored without losing the old time feel...tour guides make you feel the special story of the dedicated people who made the temple in the 1830's. Check out the rules for behavior in the temple...we all could learn from such respect and tolerance today!

This is a part of the religious history of America. The Community of Christ maintains this site and has done a fine job of it. You start in a visitors center with a movie and then proceed to the temple where your guide shows you the sights. There is a 3 story stair climb to see all the sights and... More
