Managed to park around the square . Tranquil and very pretty gardens . Welcomed by Morman "ambassadors " who were ready to answer questions and show us around. Only wish we had allowed more time for our visit.

Really enjoyed visiting Salt Lake this past April, and loved going to Conference and walking the Beautiful Temple grounds. It is amazing how they can have such beautiful flowers growing everywhere.

It looks beautiful on the outside and especially at night. Only Mormons are allowed to enter the temple. You can see a small replica of what's inside in the visitor center though.
