“Peaceful place of beauty and history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Our family enjoyed walking around the lovely temple grounds one Sunday morning. There is also a visitors center with exhibits and family centered activities. We took the extra hour to go on a tour of the pioneer home of Brigham Young nearby. Whether you are of the LDS (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) faith or not, you will enjoy the beauty and history of this place!

“Visitor center holds information and photos of interest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

suggest you visit small visitor center where you can see photos and read about the construction of the temple. It is amazing what they could construct with very limited tools.

“Always a good experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The Temple is always a wonderful visit, of course! But it is not the only reason we go to St. George.

“Beautiful Grounds, Great Tours, Family Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Whether you are going for temple worship or just to visit the grounds, the Temple surrounding area are beautiful and peaceful. Some days you might spot a wedding party (or two) taking photos, but most of the time it's very tranquil there. It is a lovely area to walk around, find a shady spot to relax in, or to meditate.

The tours there are wonderful and can easily be tailored to fit any time restraints. The tour guides & staff are very friendly and knowledgable. Most aspects of the tours are family-centered and focus on Christ, though you can also learn about the history of the area and the temple's construction. There are several interactive stations that kids love, and even a family history research corner where you can search for your own ancestors, no matter where you are from.

“Beautiful grounds, Beautiful Buildings, Inspiring Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

The temple was closed for cleaning when we were there, so we did not have the opportunity to go inside, but we did spend a couple of hours on the grounds. The visitor's centers are very nicely put together with information about the building of the temple and settlement of St. George as well as information about the Church. After viewing all of the sites, we walked around the grounds. The flowers are exquisite. There are many unusual varieties, and they are incredibly healthy. Everything is trimmed and groomed. The building shines in the brilliant sun and is so inviting. My 3 year-old grandson found the experience to be fun, and the adults were glad for the beautiful peaceful respite from our travels. It was a perfect afternoon.
