  • It's definitely worth a walk through the Temple grounds to see the ponds and flowers. If you are ever in town at Christmas time, right after Thanksgiving, the entire Temple Square is a Christmas light...  more »

  • I LOVE the Salt Lake Temple. The architecture, murals and history associated with this beautiful building are priceless. Even if you are not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it is still worth a visit to see this magnificent building. If you look closely, you will notice many symbols carved into the granite used to build the temple. Take a tour of Temple Square, and learn more about the temple and how it came to be, and the sacred ordinances performed inside. They have missionaries from all over the world serving on Temple Square, so you will find someone who speaks YOUR language! Amazing!
  • What a beautiful sacred religious site. This historic this is even more magnificent on the inside and the feeling, holy Spirit from doing the Lord's work is uplifting and inspiring. What a great place to spend time and obtain the peace in Christ. Attending the temple always lifts me up and motivates me to do better.
