Just moved to Utah less than a year ago and decided to check it out. There is no charge to enter the square or for anything, including several tours. Missionaries from all over the world give the tours and are a great source of information for the buildings, history and the LDS (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints)... More

Plan 30 minutes or all day. Whatever you have time for, this place is well worth a visit. Everything is so clean and well taken care of, and everything is free unless you decide to eat at one of the restaurants at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Relax strolling or sitting in the beautiful flower gardens. If it is hot,... More

Perhaps I had too high of expectations for Temple Square -- and I am sure if I were Mormon that it would be more meaningful to me. I would say that this is worth a walk through but not much more. The gardens are beautiful and there are plenty of places to sit and relax. The bathroom facilities are immaculately... More

The temple and other buildings are beautiful, as are the grounds. A nice place for a stroll through manicured walkways with beautiful gardens and fountains.

Temple Square is a must see if you go to SLC. Very pretty gardens, the water fountains are very attractive and an attraction for the kids to play in the water. Very clean and well kept.

I am not a member of the LDS church but was pulled here by simple curiosity. This is a 10 acre complex and includes The Salt Lake Temple, Salt Lake Tabernacle, the Joseph Smith Memorial Building/Family Search Center, visitor centers, seagull monument, reflecting pools, and assembly hall. It is all pretty interesting and is also simply a nice place for... More

Enter a different world, and leave behind everything you know. This is total immersion if you let it. People are extremely friendly, the place is beautiful, spacious, clean.

The north and south visitor centers and wonderful. We really loved the upper level in the north visitors center. My little children love seeing the statue of Christ. It's gorgeous at night when you can see it outside through the window. The temple is magnificent. Take a tour with the missionaries to learn all about the Church of Jesus Christ... More

If in salt lake around Christmas time. Temple square is a must. The gardens lit up are beautiful and the whole atmosphere is for the family.
