You will enjoy visiting these beautiful grounds and architectural building marvels. Very peaceful. Just happened on the organ recital. Be sure to check the organ recital out. Very lovely and moving.

It's hard to describe just how beautiful this building was & if you go to the restaurant on the 10th floor, you can take even more amazing photos. The museum has a model of it that shows what's inside.

We found parking on one of the side streets but you have to plug the meters even after hours. We walked back to the temple area. It was beautiful and nice but very "enclosed". No one approached us so we were free to walk around. It is beautiful and the courtyard is magnificent but this is the first time I... More

Not allowed to go in the temple but just seeing it from the outside was quite amazing. You can go in the visitor center next door to see what the inside looks like if interesting. The story behind it is pretty interesting too. Bring a camera as you will want to photograph this one.

My wife and I were married here, so I guess I might be a bit biased, but this is simply a very beautiful and majestic building. In my opinion (again biased due to my love of Christmas), the best time of the year to visit is between Thanksgiving and Christmas, when the Christmas lights are lit on Temple Square.

Though you cannot see the inside of the Temple, you can stroll around the impeccably clean and fastidiously maintained gardens which surround it.

This building is my favorite in Salt Lake, but as a non-Mormon, there are some things I want to share with other non-Mormons! First, don't expect to go inside the temple. Only Mormons with permission can enter. Second, expect to be greeted by the Mormon missionaries. They're polite, but can be persistent. So if you aren't interested, just let them... More

This beautiful building was built by Mormon pioneers over the course of 40 years from granite quarried in the nearby mountains. The well-tended surroundings are also beautiful and peaceful to visit. You can't enter the temple itself unless you're an endowed member of the LDS church, but there's plenty of beauty and craftsmanship to enjoy on the outside, and there... More

You must see and feel the Temple Square experience! There is so much to do while in Utah but if you miss this experience you will be missing one of the great sites in the world let alone the state or the country! There many tours, movies, exhibits and friendly guides to enhance your experience. All of which are free!... More
