The Salt Lake temple itself is reserved for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who hold a recommend. The grounds are beautifully and carefully landscaped. Other building on Temple Square are open to visitors and are very informative. There is a feeling here that I love. During the Christmas season Temple Square is amazing with beautiful... More

The actual building is beautiful on a wonderful setting. I was disappointed only a few have access to the inside of the temple, but respect that. The visitors centers, tabernacle, and assembly hall were all accessible and educational.

It's a magnificent view from the outside, but as a non-Mormom, it's impossible to observe or appreciate the inside of the building. The surrounding square is an excellent walking spot.

The temple is so beautiful and peaceful. The grounds are immaculate! The other buildings on the square are also amazing and historic, I love hearing the history behind them.

Temple square as it is called is a must-see for any visitor to the beehive state. Regardless of your religious beliefs Temple Square is extremely interesting as a place to learn about the roots of the state as well as the history of the mormon faith. The tour guides were not preachy whatsoever, and were extremely polite.

Only members are permitted into the temple inself. But the temple square is free. And very well worth the visit.

This is a unique place, taking 40 years to build, in the middle of nowhere when the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints left the US in search of religious freedom. There is a cut-out view available to see, located in the south visitors center. Online there are hundreds of photos of the interior. While members... More

Members are very friendly and accessible to answer questions. The visitor centers on the north and south side of the temple are very informative and staff is helpful. Only members can enter the actual temple

Gorgeous building. Breath-taking. Such a master piece of architecture. We were disappointed when we heard that you must be a Mormon to go inside. There was a nice model of the buildings inside that you could view, but still...
