Awesome on the outside

Beautiful architecture. Can't go inside unless you're of the Mormon faith. Be sure to learn the story of how and why the Temple was built.

We were looking forward to visiting the Temple here, but were disappointed that only Mormons are allowed inside. Not exactly the way to try and encourage more to join up. However, that said it is certainly impressive from the outside. The surrounding area is well tended, clean and tidy. We welcome visitors of all faiths into Bath Abbey (yes, even... More

Avoid weekends and Monday evenings as they are very busy. Opt for a week night walk around the grounds to look at the lights, and Nativity's from around the world. Great night out for couples, families or a solo traveler

Be ready to be "greeted" and if you do not follow their exact ways...be ready to be escorted out or scowled at. If you like feeling a "roller coaster" of "rainbows and unicorns" one minute and "wrath and judgement" another - PERFECT place for you to go see this. There are some people that may enjoy going just to experience... More

Love the temple during the spring when the tulips are blooming. It is peaceful and beautiful. There are many interesting details on the exterior. Be aware that only members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints may enter the interior of the temple. There is much to enjoy in the outdoor area of Temple Square, so it... More

I was looking forward to seeing a rehearsal and had just entered the hall ( signs said it was open for the rehearsal) when we were abruptly and rudely told it was a private practice. The director then yelled at the young people at the door. Not what I expected. On the other hand, the available "brothers" and "sisters" who... More

Temple Square is the heart of Mormon country. The buildings are impressive and beautiful and the landscaping is absolutely beautiful. There are scores of "Sister guides" there to answer all your questions. The only drawback is these young women are there to fulfill their missionary service to the Mormon church and are VERY enthusiastic about sharing their faith. We were... More

Even though you are not allowed to go inside the temple, you have such a beautiful view of it. If you are Mormon, it is a place of worship. Temple Square has many things to see and do. The Sisters are very informative and ready to help you at every turn. Don't miss hearing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearse and... More
