“Beautiful, but must be Morom to see inside.”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Something about being told not allowed in.....

I am intrigued, but only was able to appreciate the outside.

The history of how long it took to build, and the tenacity of the people is impressive!!

“Beautiful inside and outside”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

This is a marvelous beautiful building. A marvel when you hear the history of how it was built. Visiting inside is reserved for LDS members only with proper permission

“Architecture Acheivement”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Just the angel deserves 5 starts here. I rate bases on architecture achievement for the time. It took 40 years to build and the details show.

I cannot review the interior because it is not open to the public.

This is a must see if you like architecture. I disregard nonsense about the religious aspects. I am not sure why you rate something because you disagree with their belief. If that were true, I would most likely never go back to Washington DC.

“Beautiful...”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Even if you are not a Mormon, there is so much beauty in the architecture of this building. It is definitely worth visiting. Visiting around Christmas time is even more fun.

“A must see for every visitor to Salt Lake City”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

It is located in Temple Square and is a beautiful piece of architecture. Regretfully if your not Mormon and with proper credentials, you can not enter the facility. During the Holiday Season, the entire Temple Square area is illuminated by millions of lights placed on every branch of every tree. Truly a sight to see. Temple Square for the Mormons is sort of like the Vatican for the Catholics. Both worth visiting at least once.
