historical LDS landmark

If only I hadn't forgotten to take my recommend so I could enter the Temple and do some work there... helpful missionaries around to answer questions about the Temple.

if you are LDS you love this place. If you are not LDS they will work you to death. Want to go inside and see all the pretty stuff? Just join our club and start forking over the tithes and in you go. Uh, no thanks.

I really liked walking around this historic, significant architectural wonder. I loved the visitor centers where I was able to ask questions about the background of the temple, and the people who settled this area. There are some very beautiful old trees, and great gardens. I loved the peaceful feeling I had here, even though I was in the very... More

I have traveled to SLC during all 4 seasons, and Temple Square is spectacular during all of them. Whether you are LDS or not, it's a beautiful, peaceful place to visit, and I would recommend it for all types of visitors. Take a tour of Temple Square, and then cross the street and tour the spectacular Conference Center. Both tours... More

Everyone (seemingly) desires to see inside this structure. But you are not allowed. Doors are locked and only opened for special occasions such as Mormon weddings. In my humble opinion, the building is more lovely during the daytime than in the evenings, as the unusual lights at the top are not flattering. The reflection pool/s and fountains surrounding it are... More

Temple square would not exist if there was no temple. Not being an memner of the LDS church, we are not allowed to enter the Temple, but the outside of the temple is outstanding and can be seen from many miles.

You CANNOT go into the Salt Lake LDS Temple unless you have a recommend from your bishop (head of local neighborhood church). But you can visit Temple Square and the gardens, grounds and visitor's center. Alaso nearby and just beside the Temple Square is area near Joseph Smith Building. Gorgeous building & lobby that was the old Hotel Utah. It... More

The experience in the Temple is exceptional and hard to describe. It means a lot for me, as an LDS, to have had the chance to be in the same temple where so many pioneers were over one hundred years ago. It's a beatiful place full of history.

This Temple took 40 years to construct in the late 1800's. You must hear about the history of this extraordinary Temple! A trip to Salt Lake City is incomplete without a trip to Temple Square!
