It's fine to take some photos there (keep in mind that it's the prettiest in December with all the lights). There are too many LDS people for my taste though and if you are atheist or have any other religion than LDS, it must be even frustrating.

I went with my in-laws and their family to Temple Square to see all the sights there and it's just amazing how much there is to see and all the different tours they give you. There is so much to see in such a small area it is quite amazing. There are some beautiful buildings that make for very good... More

Very interesting even on a cold day in December. Spent some time in the genealogy library. Listened to the organ concert.

If you are in SLC around the holidays, I recommend you check out the Christmas Lights at Temple Square in Downtown SLC. This is a fun family activity. Make sure to dress warm as you will be outside for about an hour or more to walk around and see all of the lights. The best part about this is that... More

Incredible.....thats all there is to say. Learn about the history of the LDS religion, take notice of the perfectly manicured gardens, and enjoy the amazing architecture that defines the LDS region.

Really loved our visit to Temple Square. Lots of people, but the lights were fantastic. The trees have lights on every branch, out to the tips, and I can't help but wonder how hard it was to put up (and especially to take down!). Had a lovely walk to see all the lights and it really improved my Christmas spirit... More

None of our party had seen so many lights on individual trees. Very detailed and stunning in the effect. I took some really beautiful pictures but it was great to see in person. People were friendly as they walked the square and we had the chance to hear a young teenage choir sing Christmas songs. The property itself was gorgeous.... More

A must see! Temple Square is worth the visit. At this time of year they bring in the true meaning of Christmas. Don't miss the lights, the Christus and the wonderful surroundings. Explore around, you will definitely find more. It truly is the heartbeat of Salt Lake City.

Obviously the temple is best to visit during the holiday season when all of the lights are on and it really is breathtaking. Any time of year though you can go and enjoy a sense of peace on the grounds.
