Being an icon of Utah- history and culture- we brought an exchange student from Japan to tour temple square. He was so excited to talk to missionaries who spoke Japanese, and to watch videos in his language. Everyone was very accommodating and helped him to feel comfortable. His tour was one of his highlights of the things we did with... More

We were taken on a tour through the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's wardrobe areas and library then taken to sit in on the Choir's practice session. I have never seen anything so glorious! I will remember this always!

Whether you are part of the Mormon church, or part of any religion at all it is worth making the trip to Temple Square. The architecture of the temple, tabernacle, and adjacent conference center are amazing. The grounds are impeccable and impressive year round. Always great concerts and exhibits taking place. Don't miss it!

We went out of our way while driving in this area, making a special trip to see the infamous "Salt Lake"! However; upon arrival; it was really a disappointment; as there was barely any water in it, and we did not find this area to be scenic, or picturesque. It was summer; so it was both hot and dry, and... More

The Salt Lake Temple took 40 years to build, and is one of the oldest buildings in Salt Lake City. In earlier days 'till about 1973 it was the highest building, before they build the high office buildings down town, then you could see it from afar already, since the plaza has been build in front of it, the East...

I wanted to visit the temple just because I was interested in sewing such a beautiful, architectural land mark. The pictures carved into the walls that supposedly have hidden meaning were interesting. We of course, stupidly went on a Sunday. We were "greeted" every 5 minutes by a couple of people to seemed friendly enough but we felt like they... More

Definitely worth the time, particularly in Christmas Season and the Spring. This is the centerpiece of the LDS Church and the Church maintains the grounds to reflect this role. If you are worried about missionaries coming to your home, don't, just don't fill anything out there that asks for your name and address. I live in SLC go to the... More

Spend some time walking the grounds, stop by City Creek for some shopping and eat and the Garden Room for a wonderful SLC experience.

No visit to SLC should go without visiting Temple square, the architecture and story behind it alone are worth the visit. The gardens are amazing and grounds rival those of the castles in Europe. The visitor's centers are inviting and informative, the Christus statue is something all Christians can appreciate.

If you want to be hounded by the Mormon Church for the rest of your life, then by all means go to this Disney type fiasco.
