We had a tour of the Property by the SIsters. We of course couldn't go into the temple because only Mormons can go in but the building was beautiful. We did get to tour the rest of the complex. Pretty landscaping. Must see on your trip.

Beautiful - Massive complex. History and missions were interesting. Landscaping was fabulous. Disappointing that non-mormons are not allowed in the temple. We did spend several hours enjoying the displays. Parking was frustrating as the street meters evidently were not working and we had to move the car several times to finally get a parking spot in a lot across the... More

If you are interested about Mromon, building construction or religiously involved, you may enjoy more. In my case just checking out big buildings and looking around landscape is interesting part everything else is just boring.

This is well woth a visit as you are welcomed in to the temple and can learn of its history and construction. It is remarkable what the Mormons have done in spite of great adversity in their history.

I've always wanted to check this out. Although we couldn't go inside, it was still very interesting, and the visitors center was very informative. We loved walking around the park which was very clean and had multiple water features. There were at least a dozen weddings going on.

Learn the history of this building, it's awesome. See it up close. It took a long time and much sacrifice to build. But you can't go in, so don't even try.

We saw the temple at sundown and it was far larger than imagined. One cannot enter but the information centre on Temple Square gives a full insight as to the internals of the temple. Very opulant.The golden angel on the top spire was stunning.

Passes trough Salt Lake City so we stopped to see the temple grounds. It is maintained to perfection. The info buildings on the north and south were also very clean and information was always available. The Temple and surrounding building were interesting even with a little up scale cafe (no ice tea).

It was crazy busy (85 weddings the day we were there). It was so organized and nice. We didn't feel rushed. The grounds are amazing for photos, you just have to be patient to get the shots you want if you are there on a busy day.

Non Mormons are not permitted to go inside but the outside is spectacular, especially from the front with the landscaped gardens.It is amazing how this was built.
