The Temple is an architectural wonder that affords an incredible photo op. Arrive just prior to sunrise to catch the sun lighting the front of the Temple. Also be sure to capture images of the a Temple just after sunset when the exterior light come on. As an aside, only LDS members may enter the Temple.

I've always wanted to see this temple and I was not disappointed. It is very beautiful and surrounded by lovely flowers. Be sure and go into the south visitors center to see a replica that shows some of the 177 rooms that are inside of the temple.

Fine building built of beautiful materials. Sad that we were not permitted in temple. Can see model in building across the way in visitor center, along with history. Peaceful location.

If you are in Salt Lake City you needs to visit this place. You have to remember that the temple was built in mid 19h Century. There are also museums to visit and if the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is on, definitely suggest hearing. In the context of things, this is a beautiful building. Lots of places to see around the...

The architecture alone is impressive. The flowers around the grounds and surrounding buildings were beautiful. The guides were friendly & informative.

Walk around the grounds-- it's beautiful, but you can't go inside unless you're Mormon! Apparently there are a lot of weddings, so we people watched the wedding attendants.
