Although you really can't go inside the building is really impressive. It's quite pretty and imposing. Not sure what the church leaders were preparing for with 9 foot thick walls but it is an interesting feat of architecture.

If you are in Salt Lake City, definitely have to visit the Temple Square and all the other places around it. One important thing is FREE.

Definitely a highlight of our vacation! We parked on the street just outside - where our navigation system led us. Street parking is easy to use with cash or credit card @ $2/hr. We only stayed an hour and saw plenty, but we could have stayed longer! Plan ahead and listen to the organist in the tabernacle; learn about the... More

On our tour with Southern Utah Scenic Tourswe ended here. The city has changed over 55 years! Very beautiful experience touring the temple and visitor center anddining in the hotel buffet. One day probably enough to visit city, one morefor the area.

The Mormon's beautiful buildings and eloquent and inspiring music makes you wonder why so many homeless and hungry people stand outside the gates begging. Then you wonder why the adjacent upscale shopping area is OWNED by the Mormons and their owning a bank and their secrecy. Makes you wonder where all that money goes and what they really do with...

From the moment you drive up, you will be amazed at the beauty! We were lucky enough to be there when it was decorated for Christmas. Every branch of every tree was wrapped in lights! Absolutely gorgeous. We were there during the day and later went back to see at night...there was a concert, so there were thousands of people... More

Majestic. When you think that it was built so long ago you cannot help be overcome with the absolute beautiful building. Stunning. We watched brides and grooms taking pictures on the grounds added to the magic. We watched story of their stonecutter. How beautiful The House of the Lord is.

...but I give it a 1 because the cult rituals. Not just anyone can go inside. If you want to learn more about what goes on inside just do a simple google search to educate yourself.
