Unfortunately you have to be a seventh day adventist to go inside the temple but you can walk round the grounds of the temple and there is a very interesting free museum by the entrance.

THis is a magnificent structure that took 40 years to build. The detail is remarkable and, at night, it is beautifully lit.

Incredible church...Mormon Center of the Universe. Located in downtown Salt Lake City. Light rail stop nearby. Must see at night. Very beautiful. Great for photography opportunities.

We walked past the temple daily on our way to lunch. Being the holiday season, it was well worth braving the cold to see at night. I felt like I was in Disney World with all the lighted trees and shrubs.

This place is amazing. The flowers smell wonderful. But you have to take your time; the place is full of history and art. Even if religion isn’t for you it is a must see.

The church is beautiful with a reflecting pool at the front. Imagine this building was built with every piece of stone chiseled by hand, transported manually to the building site, and erected with very limited machinery. It is indeed an architectural masterpiece.

Not much to see since it is not open for tours. Can only admire from exterior. Best view is from above at The Roof restaurant.
