“Inspiring!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Beautiful and peaceful. Appreciate the early Mormon pioneers who endured so much yet constructed this magnificent building. The tour and visitor center were outstanding.

“Pioneer history and a very nice visitor's center”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

You can get a brief overview of the LDS (Mormon) church's beliefs and history of temple building. Although you cannot tour the Temple (only worthy church members may enter) you can see pictures of the interior and get an idea of the sacrifice the early settlers of this area made to build this beautiful edifice.

“hot, hot, hot!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The day we went the sun was blindingly hot. The workers give you a spiel about baptizing famous historical figures like Washington and Byron. The thought of Byron as a monogamist made me snort.

“Absolutely Amazing!! Don't miss it.”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

The Temple and its grounds are amazing. The Temple is easily seen from the interstate as you drive into St. George - but it is exquisitely beautiful at night! Once at the Temple grounds, you feel a real peace and calm that is hard to find. The Visitor's Center is very welcoming (the cool air conditioning, water fountain, and restrooms are always welcome)! The presentation that the Visitor Center's guides provide is lovely. But, even if you just want to sit and relax on your own, that's fine!

Be sure to walk around the Temple grounds. You can get some really great pictures from the Southwest corner - as well as from the front of the temple. If it's a weekend, you'll probably have to wait for wedding parties to finish with their picture before you can take yours!

We loved it. We will be back!
