“Primary LDS History Site in St. George.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2011

The St. George Utah Temple is likely the premier historical destination in St. George, being the center of worship for the members of the Church of Latter-day Saints, or Mormons. This beautiful edifice stands out of the landscape like a beacon of light, its white-washed facade reflecting the desert sun and drawing the visitor to its doors.

Alas, a commoner may not enter the temple itself, due to Church policy restricting entry to members in good standing. But the Church was kind enough to build a stunning visitor center on the grounds which includes several multi-media presentations, various doctrinal materials and some history on the construction of the site. The scaled-down sculpture of Jesus Christ, Bertel Thorvaldsen's "Christus" is a peaceful and kind reminder of the Church's Christian background. Pay attention to the holes in Christ's hands in the statue.

While visiting, I was greeted by the President of the mission (the spiritual and administrative leader of the Temple grounds and staff). He and his wife were kind and welcoming, even to this seeker of history but not of faith.

Take the time to visit this site, set aside half a day or so, its really worth it.

“Serene, beautiful, peaceful, Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2008

The temple was very peaceful. There is a visitor center where you can hear and see Jesus Christ and see other programs. The grounds are well-kept with diversity of flowers. Very nice.
