The Mormon Tabernacle Choir with organ, full orchestra, and handbells has a weekly rehearsal which is open to the public. Check before you go because time and location vary with the season. There are organ recitals in the tabernacle itself. Again you need to ask their schedule. And if you are interested in genealogy, or just want to find an... More

It doesn't matter what religion one is, this place is spiritual place. I'm a Hindu but still moved by this incredible place. The young students from all over the world give a great tour. Really make time to go to listen to the Tabernacle on Sunday morning at 9am. It is for everyone to enjoy.

And you will have no trouble getting someone to explain that history to you :-) Or of course the parts they are able to explain, of course. It is interesting enough, but don't expect to go inside. If you are coming to do that, you probably aren't reading about it on tripadvisor.

I thought the Temple is where the Mormons had their services. No it is more of a headquarters office and special meeting place for Mormon leaders only. Oh, and there is a place where they baptize the long dead. We learned all of this in the visitor center where they have a model of it and films showing what is... More

Holy place for those who believe in living prophets... Well manicured and clean. We had some extra time to kill... You will learn little bit about their religion.

Loved it so beautiful but cannot understand why we cannot go in and could not get a clear answer off them. Have been in the great churches in the world so why not this one. Lots of bride and grooms there but the one girls Mom told me the wedding was in two weeks time, they get married in a... More

Temple Square with Salt Lake Temple is a must see while in the Salt Lake Area. There is a museum nearby that will tell you more of the history of the temple as well and the usage of each room and who can enter which areas of the temple. Although not Mormon, learning about Mormonism is also very interesteing. All... More

Still, the architecture is fantastic and considering when it was built, we could appriciate it even more. Beautiful sight to see it lit up at night. During the day, view it from the end of the reflecting pool for a great photo. If you take a tour around the grounds, you can see a model of some of the inside... More

This was my first trip to Utah, and I must say it is spectacular. I knew very little about the Mormon religion or its people but let me tell you after 4 days here I was quite impressed. Their moral values and etiquette toward people of all faiths is remarkable. The way they treated their guests were like family and... More
