I made a point to visit Temple Square and was fascinated by the facility and the attractions. Numerous things to see and do throughout the square. Do not miss the Family Research Center at the Smith building

The public spaces around Temple Square are very pretty--from the flowers, trees and fountains. It's a nice place to wander through to unwind and relax. The Temple (which is closed to the public) is the centerpiece of the area.

I knew very little about the history of the Mormon church. We spent an afternoon exploring Temple Square. I found it interesting but unless you have a connection to the church, it was rather boring. I'm glad I visited to satisfy my curiosity but there are far more interesting sights in the Salt Lake City area.

Walking around Temple Square was very nice. Although, outside the Temple gates there were a few homeless people looking for handouts. I did not like walking through them to get inside our outside the gates. The property in Temple Square is very nice, and very well maintained.

The grounds include great varieties of flower beds and mature trees. The buildings are historical tracing back to the pioneer heritage of skilled craftsmen who immigrated from europe. Unique artwork, statues, monuments, and knowledgeable tour guides.

The Garden is large area to walk around and plenty of shade if needed.Get there earlier than 9:00 pm. The Tabernacle closes and cannot be toured.

Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah was three tram stops away from Fairfield Marriott Hotel where we had put up. Once there we felt surrounded with the most magnificient churches we had ever seen. We wondered why most of the people were so dressed up until we realized that there were a dozen weddings taking place in the church... More

You go here to see the history of the Morman culture and religion. There are several buildings including a small museum. There are several gardens and trees to provide shade. Unfortunately, you cannot enter the temple on normal occasions because it is holy ground to the Mormons.
