Gran place to visit and learn about nice things. The city is beautiful and the buildings are awesole specially the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Next to it is the Joseph Smith memorial building which is a great building to take pictures and have some rest.

We enjoyed walking around the outside of the Salt Lake Temple admiring the exterior architecture. The grounds are worth a walk, and the nearby visitor centers are free to visit. One of the visitor centers has a model of the temple which gives an idea of what it looks like inside. Visitors can view the temple from above by visiting... More

Only active LDS members may actually enter the Temple itself, but it is eminently photogenic particularly from the gardens during the day, and since it is bathed in soft lighting it presents a striking photo opportunity from almost anywhere at night. The Angel Moroni can be beautifully photographed bathed in the morning sun and with the sun setting to the... More

You can see this building from all sides only on the outside. It is made of marble and is quite awe inspiring just from the architecture alone. The sentiments may be another matter!

The grounds and reflective pools surrounding the temple are gorgeous. There are usually multiple weddings occurring, expect to see bridal parties if you're there long enough. The building is beautiful from the outside. Go to the South Visitors Center to see a replica of the inside of it.

While the temple is not open to the public it nevertheless is an inspiration. A sense of peace and feeling closer to God is how I would characterize the experience.

The temples are beautiful and it is free to get in. There is a lot of photo opportunities. If you go on Sunday you can be part of the service, but the shops in the area are all closed on Sunday.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir with organ, full orchestra, and handbells has a weekly rehearsal which is open to the public. Check before you go because time and location vary with the season. There are organ recitals in the tabernacle itself. Again you need to ask their schedule. And if you are interested in genealogy, or just want to find an... More
