Exquisite Place

Exquisite architecture display. We learned that the temple was granite. It is awesome. The temple square was merrily designed this Christmas season. Go there and you will love it.

However, don't think about kissing your same sex partner in this area, criticizing the LDS church, or think that any of this is more than a religious monument for the Mormons. The city of Salt Lake itself is very liberal and allows for expression but this is the holiest of sites for the Mormons and they will make sure you... More

Great experience visiting, seeing and feeling the History of this property. Nice exhibits to learn about the early settlers in Utah known as the pioneers. Nice information about families and how to keep them safe in this crazy world. A wonderful spiritual place.

Took my family to see the beautiful Christmas lights at Temple Square. You can get lost with all the different colors of lights and how they have them displayed. There is plenty of manger scenes throughout the Square. Near the Tabernacle they have a beautiful manger display that tells the Christmas story of baby Jesus. Is a great activity to... More

We happened to be in town when Temple Square had their Christmas lights up. There must have been over a million lights, it was just beautiful!

Beautiful area and very welcoming. We got great photos. Parking right on the street, probably because we were there in the off-season.

My question is what are they REALLY doing for the homeless? The area is overrun with homeless men begging for money. I asked them why they don't go to the temple for food. They say the people won't help them.

I can't imagine anyone coming to Salt Lake City and not taking 30 minutes to an hour to see this impressive array of buildings and grounds. In addition to the two visitor centers at the north and south ends of the complex, we found several of the tabernacles open (each dating from the 1800's), and each had young missionaries available...
