Beautiful Temple. They had representatives walking around answering questions. I was given a card so when I got home I could start my family tree. There are beautiful gardens surrounding the Temple.

The temple is neat. The architectural design is unique and kinda odd. I wish there was a tour to explain it. My father and I looked at it for some time as we have a minor side interest in things like that. I am sure the design was intentional and various little features. The temple is very pretty at night.

This is a beautiful building but tours are not given and it is not open to the public. However there are other mormon owned buildings in the immediate vvicinity that do guve tours and are worth a visit.

Viewing the Temple from State Street or the reflecting pool is a wonderful experience. I watched the sun setting behind the Temple on two different days...this provided a great photo opportunity, if you like that sort of thing. Also, with its draw the area is great for people watching. Especially brides and grooms. Also, go to the South Visitor Center... More

Outstanding "old world' architecture. Temple was build in the late 1800's and took 40 years to complete. Get with one of the Mormon Greeter and let them tell you about its' history and building.

When you realize the Salt Lake Temple took forty years to build, it is amazing. The architecture and craftsmanship is very unique. The grounds around the temple are always stunning, especially at Christmastime.

Not anything comprable to the great cathedrals of Europe...or even NYC. From a simple architectural standpoint there was nothing inspiring. Nothing that pointed to inspired craftsmanship, ornately considered vestibules, tapestries, statues, stained glass. Nothing to leave you standing in reverent awe. It was surprisingly tasteless and decidely, common.

When you learn about the history of the Mormon Pioneers and what they had to endure just to get to Utah, you are even more impressed by the magnitude of effort that must have gone into the erection of this building. This place is beautiful! You cannot enter the Temple unless you are LDS and live by the highest standards... More

Figured this would be like cathedrals I've visited in Europe. Not so much. It's pretty, but not sure I've drive there just for this. Meh!
