Even though it was closed because of Covid, it was lovely to walk the grounds. There were historical markers giving some of the history. We'll come back again to see the inside.

We visited the temple grounds while traveling through Kirtland. There were no tours because of Covid, but we walked around the grounds and enjoyed the peace. There were benches to sit on, and the grounds were very beautiful and well-kept. Had a really neat peaceful feeling just sitting here.

Our tour of the Kirtland Ohio area included a visit to the Kirtland Temple. The temple was built by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the 1830’s, and very historically significant to them, many revelations and restorations took place there. The building was abandoned when they had to move from the area because of intense persecution. It is now owned and beautifully maintained by the Community of Christ church. We were unable to tour the building itself because of COVID restrictions, and the Community of Christ’s Visitors Center was closed when we were there. We enjoyed walking about the beautiful grounds, absorbing the peaceful atmosphere, pondering the history, and taking pictures of this amazing place.

We visited during Covid, so the temple was closed to visitors which was a great shame. We flew a drone over the building to get an amazing veiw from above.

I would have loved to have been in Kirtland around the time the Temple was built...beautiful surroundings and a slower pace of life. The tour allows one to do just that for a short period of time.

There are quite a few steps, so the tour is not handicap friendly. If one cannot walk up several flights of stairs they will have to remain on the lower level of the temple.

The tour guide did a great job in explaining the uses of the different rooms and the architecture. We particularly enjoyed the end of the tour. The group sat in a pew, our daughter played the piano and the group sang a church hymn . If only life was always this peaceful.

So much history at the Kirtland Temple. We arrived and had just missed a tour so we had to wait around for about 30 minutes which gave us time to look around the visitors center and gift shop. Tom, our tour guide was excellent. So knowledgable, down to earth and relatable. The Community of Christ has done a wonderful job with this visitors center. The big picture window that is unvelied after the short video gives an impressive view of the temple! Actually being about to tour the temple was awesome. We sat in the pews on the first floor while Tom told us stories. It was a great experience. Worth taking the 1-2 hours to visit.

The tour begins in the Visitors Center. After a historical video on Kirtland Temple, the screen was drawn up and the curtains opened to the view of the Temple. Going inside I felt the Spirit that I did in 1987. It's still a special place in the hearts of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. And the tour guide was very knowledgable of the historical facts of the Temple and the Saints of the 1830's. And to top the tour off we sang "The Spirit of God" which was sang at the dedication of Kirtland Temple. Visit Kirtland and you will not be dissappointed.

I learned a lot while visiting the Kirtland Temple. The visit was packed with interesting information and presented by such kind and knowledgeable tour guides. All my questions were answered with interesting facts and I just had a good time stopping in at a spot I have passed driving many times. My time was well spent. I kept asking myself why I had not stopped in sooner. It is a very interesting place so close to home.

Cherie was an excellent guide for this tour of the historic temple. It appeared that all visitors in our group were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints including a group from Brazil who didn’t speak much English. Cherie handled this challenge very well.
