Majestic place, which I could get in but there were many weddings. Ended up by walking around the temple which looked amazing. The garden also was well planned. I would say it's a MUST if your visiting Salt Lake City.

Very nice location to visit. Everyone was welcoming and willing to share information about their faith. The tabernacle was very impressive.

It looks pretty nice, but we were disappointed that we could not go into the temple. I understand that this is not allowed by the Mormon faith. But they even had the gates closed so you could not directly walk next to the temple in the temple garden. Visitor centers were nice though, friendly people.

As we are not LDS we could not enter the Temple, but we could photograph it and simply gawk at its beauty. People of all faiths can admire the majesty of the Salt Lake (LDS) Temple.

Well worth the time. Beautiful building. Only members can enter but well worth a photo stop if nothing else.

The Temple Tour is so enjoyable. If you have time at the SLC International Airport, there are vans to bring you back and forth to Temple Square so you can take the tour and learn some of the history. It is a beautiful spot to visit any time of the year.Family friendly.

I have been here many times and I never get tired of it when I'm visiting in Salt Lake City. Its a peaceful area to be in Salt Lake, there's lots of wonderful rich history in both their visitor centers. Those are located on the property. Not to mention the nice Missionaries of the church there to assist you with... More

This is a very beautiful place. The gardens and the landscaping is exquisite !! We loved the tours of the first buildings and found the whole visit very interesting and gained more knowledge of the history of the settling of the area

It's impossible to avoid being "intercepted" by one of the faithful, and they make a beeline for you...but you know what? It was alright. We thought we'd be proselytized and after dodging two very friendly people who clearly belong there, we got to talking to a pleasant person from Taiwan on her mission. She showed my wife, going son, and... More
