If your looking for a pretty garden during the spring and summer, the temple grounds are where it's at, during winter beautiful lights, but watch out for young couples, they're always marriage proposals going on.

This building is historic to say the least. It took 40 years to build and it will last forever. The insides and the outsides are beautiful.

Over the years I have visited Salt Lake City three times. Temple Square and the main building on it, the Mormon Temple, are for me every time a highlight. The architecture is magnificent. Although you cannot visit the building it is a joy to walk around the Temple and take pictures of its wonderful architecture.

It's a sacred building for members of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints, so if you're not a member of that church then you cannot enter. However the building is stunning, and the fact it was built by pioneers in the mid 1800's makes it even more impressive.

I was greeted many times by many missionaries as I walked the grounds of the temple. Entrance to the temple is limited to LDS church members. However, you can view a diorama and videos in the museum ~ free of charge. There was a lot of snow on the grounds but the sidewalks were clear and the fountains were beautiful... More

ENtrance to the temple is reserved for members of the LDS church with current recommends only. However, everyone is welcome in the visitors center. There they have information about temples and dioramas of several rooms inside. There are videos (free of charge) that you can watch. It's like a museum about the LDS faith. There are missionaries there to answer... More

Although you must be a member of the LDS Church to enter this temple, everyone is welcomed to walk on the grounds. It is amazing to see the gardens around the Temple in the Spring and Summer....absolutely gorgeous. There are many fountains and reflecting pools. Perfect places for those lovely LDS brides to have their pictures taken prior to going... More

I live in SLC and have visited Temple Square many times. I am not Mormon, so these visits are purely for enjoyment purposes. The Square is well kept and absolutely beautiful in Spring. The flowers and gardens are so lush and colorful. In winter, the entire square in decked out in lights. The reflection pond is particularly beautiful in winter... More

The Salt Lake temple is a wonderful place to visit. If you are not a member of the LDS church, come and visit; it is a very fun way to learn more about Jesus Christ and his restored gospel in the latter days. The Salt Lake temple took 40 years to construct. I was married there to my wife Dec... More

Visitor centers are well decorated and informative. Missionaries are very enthusiastic in teaching history of Mormons. They gifted me the book of Mormons. I love the place. Every time I go to SL valley, I make sure to visit the temple.
