You cannot actually go into the Temple, although you can look at the inside of a model of it. If you stand still more than 30 seconds, you are accosted by an au pair telling you how wonderful Jesus is. Wasn't really much on the tour, and it is interesting how they have a huge concrete wall around the block... More

if you have some time do visit Temple Square. Tours leave regularly from the flagpole outside the Tabernacle where a couple of Missionaries will give you a bit of the history of their religion and take you to a couple of the buildings. Note you will not be taken to the Temple, but the South visitor centre has a model... More

There is no doubt that this is a 'must see' for anyone visiting Salt Lake City. The layout of the square, the architecture and the lines and angles of all the buildings are simply spectacular. And then there are the guides, or to give them their true titles, the missionaries. They act together in pairs, with one clearly the more... More

These building are really cool to see up close. The tour guides are friendly, respectful and eager to tell you about the history of their religion and to answer any questions you might have. I enjoyed learning something new.

If you like to explore other religions, this is a visit for you. The square is beautiful and the information given allows you to get to know the Mormon religion. I avoided the different hosts. Although they were very nice, I didn't like the fact they were trying to convert you.

The grounds are simply amazing. The buildings well designed and worth seeing. I really enjoyed visiting. The church members are very friendly and willing to share without pressuring you. It was nice.

We visited SLC for a family wedding and included Temple Square in our sight seeing. This is a spectacular complex, filled with history, beauty, music and really nice people. We listened to the Mormon Tabernacle choir rehearse, toured the buildings, gained historical perspective of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as well as the pioneer struggle to... More

Very clean and great lighting to feel safe day or night visiting (as long as the gate is open). Several buildings to visit. Great place for photos.

Lovely place to visit for all people visiting Utah. A MUST SEE! When you have some time I'd recommend to travel Salt Lake City and Provo,UT Area. Never seen such beautiful cities like that!

Temple Square is great anytime, but they pull out all the stops for the holiday season. Catch a play, performance, tour, the lights, grab a meal at any one of three delicious eateries... Just don't get freaked out by the overt and sometimes annoying friendliness of the missionaries. Let them take you around, no pressure, you'll be glad you did.
