We spent an entire Saturday here. We went to both visor centers, an organ recital at the tabernacle, talked to lots of missionaries, saw wedding parties outside the temple, toured the Beehive House, and ate at the cafe. It was a wonderful educational experience, with engaging conversations with tour hosts learning about the Church of Jesus Christ LDS. No matter... More

Just a nice place to walk around and admire the architecture and attention to detail. Still felt welcomed even though I'm not LDS. Grounds are well kept and attractive.

Outside the gates of temple square Salt Lake is a normal bustling city. But once you cross the threshold there is a palpable change--a peace that is difficult to describe. While the temple itself is not open for tourists, they do have two visitors centers as well as two other historic buildings that are open to the public. They also... More

My family was visiting Salt Lake City and we walked over to Temple Square for the morning. Although we are not Mormons, it was still interesting to visit this place and learn more about the Mormon history in SLC. Seeing one of the oldest temples and the Tabernacle building was pretty cool. We went on a free 20-minute guided tour... More

You hear about it but until you're there you just can't imagine what it's like. Lot of things to do and see. Even if you're not a MDS member you'll still like what you see. If you're in Salt Lake City and downtown this is one place you have to check off your "To-Do" list.

If you want to know more about Mormonism, this is the place to go. The temple is beautiful, but if you are not Mormon, you can't enter it; but you can go in the Visitor Center, which is huge, and has a wealth of information about the beginnings of Mormonism. It's somewhere between fantastic and bizarre in costly exhibits and... More

You'll have to see Temple Square, but compared to the great wonderful sites of the world it was just ok. Not sure I would make a special trip just to see the square.

We visited to take some pictures of the gardens and surrounding architecture. I prefer evening and night photos so I was a little disappointed that the places closes at 9:00 pm. If you are going in for a short visit, I recommend you park at the city center, it offers a variable rate vs the $10.00 flat rate here. The... More
