When you consider it was built in the 19th century and is iconic to the St George area, just walking around it is a great experience. The visitor center has lots of answers to what the Mormons are all about.

Attended a session, yes we are mormon, and loved every second of it with my lovely wife. The temple workers were fantastic!

The St. George Temple was the first one built by the LDS (Mormons). It is a charming old building. Prohibited entrance to non-Mormons, but the grounds, lighting, and visitor center are top notch. Be prepared for a "sales pitch", but by a very sweet young woman (they are all sweet and perky who volunteer).

The brilliant white temple really stands out with the red rock countryside! Absolutely stunning! The grounds are peaceful and quiet and a great place to meditate and bring your family to enjoy the beautiful spirit of the place.

This is a gorgeous old Temple--the first one built in Utah. It is white white, and at night it really stands out. Only members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints may enter, but it is worth a look even if you can't go in.

You cannot enter the temple itself unless you are a church member but the visitor center is open to all and a must stop. There is so much history here and the information on how the poor settlers from the 1800's managed to build such an amazing place in the middle of nowhere is fascinating. The center has several missionaries... More

It is fun to visit the temple and see the grounds. If you are a member and able to enter, there are beautiful paintings in the rooms.

The temple is beautiful to see - although you cannot go into the temple because it is for members only. They have a very nice visitor center that tells you about the building of the temple, and pictures of the rooms. The gardens are beautiful, too! I can say that I was impressed that no one asked for any money,... More
