Beautiful facade, model in South visitors building

The temple is beautiful but accessible to only Mormons. So we took a turn around looking at the exterior and enjoyed the early blooming gardens adjacent to the grounds. If you... read more

The temple is beautiful but accessible to only Mormons. So we took a turn around looking at the exterior and enjoyed the early blooming gardens adjacent to the grounds. If you want to see what the interior looks like go inside the South Visitors Building to see the process to build the Temple and a large model of the Temple... More

I never realized this: There are TWO halls (very similar in set-up but very different in age) where the Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs. The Salt Lake Temple is much older (I'm guessing it is a hundred years old, if not more) but still a good (not great) hall. The newer hall (the LDS Conference Center) is the better of the... More

After learning what it took to build this beautiful building, the sacrifice and patience. I can imagine sticking to a construction project that took 40 years to complete. Not be missed.

If you are here, affiliated with the local religion and you want to visit the temple, it is arguably one you should be seeing. For all others, not able to enter this building, this is a must see photo op and grounds visit, if nothing else. Iconic and picturesque and a staple of the Salt Lake skyline. Located directly in...

The Salt Lake City Temple, located on Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake City, is a must see attraction for the whole family. The temple was built by the Mormon pioneers, who carved the granite stones from the mountains, and hauled them down to the valley. It took 40 years of labor to complete. Many of the pioneers donated one... More

Like I said about Temple Square generally, this is a curiosity but hardly world historical religious architecture. You can't go if you're not LDS and in good standing.

We always enjoy the serenity, calm and peace when visiting the temple and the grounds. Took the family over Valentines weekend and wasn't busy.

The church grounds are beautiful. You can walk around and mingle with church members if you have any questions. There is a museum opened to the public. My favorite was the doll house sized replica of the temple. They don't allow nn members to enter the actual temple, so the model is as close you get. The grounds are beautiful... More

The best time to visit the Temple is at Christmas. All the lights and the grounds are always very clean and pretty. It is worth the visit to see the great view of the lights.

This is a beautiful temple and definitely a sight to see in Salt Lake City. I went in for a moment and am excited to come back to spend more time here. Note you need to be a LDS temple recommend holder to enter the actual temple, but there is plenty to do and see if you are not Mormon... More
