Dwarfed by the tall buildings surrounding the Granite Mormon Temple with a golden angel on top of one of its spires is a must to be seen. The volunteer guides will tell you the history of how it was built and you will learn about the dedication of the early settlers. It is a pity that non-members of the Church... More

The Salt Lake Temple took over 40 years to build. It was built mostly with hand tools by many many people. The building is replete with symbolism relevant to the Mormon faith. Non-church members may not go inside, but just a walk around the building to see the architecture and a talk with the church representatives there who can tell... More

Walking around the building is a great experience. There is a peaceful spirit there. The building's architecture is fascinating. The people there are very friendly.

We go here few times a year for praying since our family was a member of the Church. Even so, every time I went inside I could still feel the sacredness of the Temple that came out from the architecture and all the history background. Even not being a Church Member, Salk Lake is a religious place that worth visiting... More

Nothing short of Stunning! Architecturally, Spiritually. Just breathtaking. Any member of the LDS church should attend at least one session in this Temple!

what can I say we did several sessions and because of the sacredness of the Temple we can not share anything about what occurs inside. But it was fabulous.

We could not go in the Temple, but to see the building architecture outside was amazing! This is incredible at day or at night with all the lights, and you can also visit the museum located besides the Temple, where you will have all the description on the history of the Temple through videos, furniture and construction tools expositions, and...

I love this temple. Fun to watch all the brides and grooms after their weddings in it, and the location is just beautiful

You must be a Church Member to enter, however this is a one-of-a-kind Temple. The artworks and frescoes are world class. Every Church Member owes it to themselves to visit here when they are old enough to understand what went into the construction and maintenance of this edifice.

A very good place and a must place to visit for tourist visiting SLC. The temple was well decorated and the lighting was awesome. It's slightly crowded on the holidays.
