Very immaculate landscaping with attention to detail. Everything is so clean. The history here is amazing, and the details of the Temple construction are impressive. A lot of religious and "Mormon" movies available for free viewing.

We loved all the architecture and the great museum inside. It was a Sunday morning so services were going on. The gardens were also beautiful.

Old mall, past it's prime... But the new stores coming in are reviving it. The Brewpub has great beers, the used bookstore (Weller Book Works)! is a great place to lose a few hours, the Spaghetti Factory is still there and Whole Foods is a good anchor for the malls renaissance. Food trucks on the weekend... Check it out.

So much to see and experience for the entire family - much of it is totally unique. The Joseph Smith Memorial Building with the Family Search Center is a great place to begin both your Temple Square adventure and the trail of your ancestors. The history and majesty of the architecture and the Visitor Centers (2) is hard to describe... More

Beautiful buildings, fountains, grounds. The square holding all the buildings stretches an entire city block. No all allow entry but do go in those for public viewing.

It is impressive from the architectural point of view, but the tour guides which are Mormon missionaries tried of course to convince us of the goodness of their faith, and yet had only little time and information. The temple cannot be entered, only the tabernacle and the assembly hall we have seen from the inside.

Just wandered around the square taking in the sights. We were pretty much in awe the whole time, not just the view of the square but the 360 degree panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains. Overall Salt Lake City was beyond beautiful but otherwise very boring. Worth going to once but probably not a return visit.

This temple is a great place to learn the history of some of folks who eventually made Utah whatbit is today. Surrounded by history and family it is a beautifully graceful building that speaks to what humans can accomplish when they work together.

This is a sight to see!! I have been here twice and brought new people with this time. It was just as wonderful as the first time I was here. Looking at the details of everything and learning the history of things and the start of the LDS is really neat. You can go into a lot of the buildings... More

My friends and I walked through Temple Square many times at many times of the day and it was always so clean and the flowers were so pretty and well maintained. The people there were so friendly.
