Gothic architecture, granite and marble construction. Non members of LDS are not allowed inside, but the exterior is impressive.

We visited one evening in May, the beauty of the gardens was surreal, with thousands of spring flowers in bloom, hummingbirds everywhere- truly a magical place!

Was so excited to finally get to visit the square and see the Temple up close. The Mormon history is interesting.

This is the most amazing religious site, I have visited to date. Lots of history and the grounds are just magical. We took lots of pictures everywhere we went. Visit the visitors center if you get a chance.
