Temple square sits on a city block, dominated by the majestic Mormon temple with its stately spires and granite facade. The tabernacle sits adjacent with a rounded roof for near perfect acoustics. Next door is a smaller tabernacle or meeting building. There are statues and fragment flowers, with lots of green lawn area. Also there are two visitor centers on... More

Temple Square is a great place to just take an afternoon stroll in. The temple is breathtaking. During Christmas, the light displays are very cultural (displays/languages from all over the world) and fun to look at. In the spring, the flowers are gorgeous! Definitely a nice short day trip any time of the year!

Loved Temple Square! No admission fees. Fun and interesting for the whole family from young to old. Definitely would recommend taking a walk through both the North and South Visitor's Centers. We didn't opt for an official tour but you can ask for a tour guide and book in advance online. Tours are offered in multiple languages! There's lots to... More

these folks are just fishing for converts, plain and simple. Nice building, but you can't get in unless you are already in the club. It is probably not club you want to join and it is very evident there are some folks they would be quite happy to exclude. Count me out even it they would let me in. the... More

I went with my family (husband, 2 children 3.5yo and 7mo). Very nice place, well kept as all LDS temple grounds. Very helpful missionaries, not too pushy, nor too much prozelytising. Visitor Centers (north and South) have different things on display and help you understand the LDS mindset and beliefs. good view from the Joseph Smith's building (10th floor, elevator... More

I visited temple square with a couple of friends, it was very beautiful and neat. They have missiinaries to guide you through everything around the building. It's truly a place where you can be in touch with God and your inner self. It's a great place for you to think about God or life in general.

The Temple Square landscaping was simply exquisite. Tremendous attention to detail, and the variety of flowering plants that were in bloom was amazing. Incredibly peaceful, and the water features were well designed and beautiful.

A group of us went to visit the square with a few teen children. No one is LDS but we found some wonderful young LDS women to tour us around the facility including the visitor centers and tabernacle. The women did discuss their religion a bit but only in relation to the history and use of the facilities there. This... More

The grounds at Temple Square are always beautiful! In March the beds are full of color. It was a beautiful day to be outdoors, walking around to look at the statues, take a peek inside the Tabernacle, and enjoy the very interesting (two) Visitor Centers.
