Although you cannot go inside unless you are a church member, the outside is beautiful. The tour, given by LDS members is great. A do not miss in SLC.

Beautiful Mormon temple, officially known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We were not allowed inside, and understand that it will close for renovations which are scheduled to begin in December 2019. The exterior architecture is overwhelmingly beautiful.

The public is not allowed inside but one can learn about its history and other information by joining a tour at the Visitor Information Center, located across from it. I learned that it took 40 years to build it. Materials used are from local quarries....More

We visited temple square. You do not need to be mormon to appreciate the beauty of this church. It was worth the walk around to look at the grounds.

What amazing architecture for the time it was built! We need to go back in 4 years before it is dedicated to see the inside. The model in the visitor center gives you an idea of the interior.
