The Salt Lake Temple and the grounds are far above anything to experience in Salt Lake City, especially during Christmas. They ground and trees are all lite up and exceed expectations every year. During the summer the well manicured lawn and landscape are tip top and make for excellent landscape pictures or even family pictures. The reflection pond it spectacular.... More

The Salt Lake Temple and Temple Square is right downtown Salt Lake City - easy to get to with lots of options for food and shopping right across the street. It's a beautiful and extremely clean place with a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. The temple looks like a castle from Europe! You don't want to miss coming to Temple Square... More

The Temple building is the greatest sight to see. It is architecturally amazing to stand beside it. Wonderfully lite at night!

The Temple is an interesting place to visit. Unless you are a member you are not allowed to see the full temple. The architectural aspects are beautiful, as is the setting. It is a wonderful experience. It doesn't matter if you are a member or not this is a must if you are in the area.

Being an icon of Utah- history and culture- we brought an exchange student from Japan to tour temple square. He was so excited to talk to missionaries who spoke Japanese, and to watch videos in his language. Everyone was very accommodating and helped him to feel comfortable. His tour was one of his highlights of the things we did with... More

We were taken on a tour through the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's wardrobe areas and library then taken to sit in on the Choir's practice session. I have never seen anything so glorious! I will remember this always!

Whether you are part of the Mormon church, or part of any religion at all it is worth making the trip to Temple Square. The architecture of the temple, tabernacle, and adjacent conference center are amazing. The grounds are impeccable and impressive year round. Always great concerts and exhibits taking place. Don't miss it!

We went out of our way while driving in this area, making a special trip to see the infamous "Salt Lake"! However; upon arrival; it was really a disappointment; as there was barely any water in it, and we did not find this area to be scenic, or picturesque. It was summer; so it was both hot and dry, and... More
