Our visit to Temple Square was once in a lifetime. We enjoyed the tabernacle, the square and had a free tour of some of the sites.

It's beautiful through out. Very peaceful. But you have to belong to the LDS Church and have to have special permission to enter.

My only regret is that not being Mormon, I cannot go inside. What an amazing building. I can only imagine the affect being inside would have on one. Lovely.

One of my favorite places on earth! Solo, with family, friends, as a couple, any age, this is a great place to be, any time of the year.

You need to spend several hours looking inside and around this spectacular building. The interior is full of art works explain the history of the building and religion associated with it. We found the people we met there very friendly and helpful and they provided lots of information about the activities in and around the chapel.

The Temple is not open for any non LDS member or for any LDS member not in "good standing". The outside views are wonderful and the architecture is a sight to see. Stop by just for the view if you are not allowed to enter.

Yes, it is only visible from the outside, but it sure is beautiful. Nicely kept, clean beyond belief. It is a Temple, so please show respect. Their beliefs are different than mine, but that does not mean I disrespect. I had a tank top and did put a sweater on to cover up. But I noticed a lot of tourists... More

They don't let you in--so cannot comment on the temple itself. But took a few pictures from outside. Temple grounds were well maintained. The visitor center provides a lot of information if you want to learn about LDS. There are also many volunteers who help tourists find their way around

The temple grounds were kept well and we visited the different attractions. Sadly the fountains were not running and when we went to the Admin building to take the lift upstairs for a bird's eye view the visit was spoiled by an overzealous official who did not make us feel very welcoming by telling us to stand three feet away...

The temple isn't open to the general public but you can walk around it and there is a model showing what it looks like from the inside.
