This is a very interesting place to visit even if you are not a religious person. It is very well done and family friendly place. It is great as a place to visit in a rainy or very cold day.

Although people are not allowed to access this temple, it is still worthy to visit and watch this building from outside. It's just so beautiful.

Even if you only walk around the outside (day or night) the grounds around the building are scrupulously kept and lovely...and the Temple itself is stunning during the day and dramatic, lit up at night. The fact that it's "off limits" to non LDS seems to add a little to the allure GRIN.

The Mormon girls around the square grounds are harmless, although eager to recruit new members to their church. Be polite and learn as much as you can before letting them down. The building is not open to the public but there's a model of it nearby in the visitor center that shows tons of detail on the temple itself.

Although we are not LDS, we couldn't resist a trip into the City during a 3.5 hour layover to see the Temple that we had only seen on TV every Christmas. The grounds are beautiful, with grand trees and beautiful flowers and other elements of landscaping. To know people worked so hard to build something on such a grand scale... More

For a non Mormon I was really pleased with my eperience whilst doing the tour of the campus and all the facilities there. It was really fun learning some of the history of the Mormons and hearing from the 'Sisters" that guided us on our tour.

Even though I am not a Mormon, I have to say that this Temple is beautiful. The grounds alone inspire everyone that visits. The Temple Square is a 10 acre complex owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints. If you want to hear something really impressive, visit the Temple when the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is visiting. If... More

The LDS Temple is not a tourist attraction you can just waltz inside, but it is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for photos. I highly recommend taking a nice walk around Temple Square (the grounds surrounding the Temple) in the spring when all the tulips are in bloom. It's a sight you have to see before you die!

If you're in Salt Lake City you have to go. It would be like not visiting the Vatican while in Rome. It's just so interesting even if you're not Mormon. I'm not and I find it fascinating.

Even if you aren't LDS, this is a super cool place to visit just to see the amazing architecture and learn the story of how it was built. There's a room inside the Visitor's Center which has a huge Christus inside, it's a definite 'must-see'.
