Wondered about going to this but have always wanted to see it. Thought it would take a couple of hours but it took all day. The organ recital at noon is great and wish we had been there the day the Choir practices. There is a lot to see and do and although everyone is friendly there is no pressure... More

When visiting Temple Square young people give short free tours that include the Tabernacle, where we heard an organ concert, and various general information. Very worthwhile, regardless of which faith one might be.

The size of Temple Square was huge and immaculately maintained. Flowers were everywhere and strings or lights miles of stringed lights were being put on the trees for Christmas. There were always people available to help or answer questions.

Everything is so well organized, labeled, decorated, VERY clean, almost . . . heavenly! Wish we'd gone in the night before to see things all lit up (and to hear the choir rehearse on a Thursday night). We saw about 8 brides being photographed in various spots around the Tabernacle and heard there are about 30 weddings/day. Beautiful flowers everywhere.

There is a lot to absorb about the Mormon culture and religion at Temple Square, so I would recommend reading up on it before you come so you can really embrace it. Depending upon your interest level, it may not be possible to absorb all of Temple Square in one day. If you are not that interested, 2-3 hours should... More

The landscaping is always immaculate, filled with beautiful flowers in warm months. When it's lit up with zillions of lights for the holidays it's gorgeous. Fountains and water features create relaxing background noise. It's a beautiful, peaceful place to walk around and enjoy. The historic buildings are also attractive eye candy, inside and out, and many can be toured for... More

After hearing the choir we walked around Temple Square, it is beautiful- there were flowers everywhere and great place to get pictures of the temple.

I went to see the Temple out of pure appreciation for the architecture. I admit that I was a bit nervous I would be accosted by the missionaries, but that was not the case. They were definitely on hand, but in a "we are here if you want to talk to us" way. No one talked to me except for... More

I really was not that familiar with the Mormon faith. After walking around the beautiful grounds and seeing the beautiful buildings, It made me very curious. I came back to my hotel and read about the Mormon faith. In the evenings, around 9pm... I could hear what I thought was the choir. It was very beautiful to listen to as... More
