St. George Temple, St. George

4.7
Although the Salt Lake Temple in the state's capital is more famous, St. George Temple is the first Mormon temple built in Utah after the religious group arrived. The brilliant white-plaster finish on its exterior creates a striking contrast with the surrounding red sandstone buttes that provided much of the building material. Head to the visitor center to discover the story behind the Mormons' journey from Illinois to Utah and the building of this temple. You can also take a free tour of the temple to learn about its three ordinance rooms and 18 sealing rooms. Keep an eye out for the cannon on the temple grounds--Napoleon used it in his attack on Moscow, and the piece traveled through Siberia, Alaska, and California before ending up here.

  • Splendid architecture of immaculate white! Very clean, very well maintained gardens. No visit possible inside. We're going to give you a movie about Mormons. Movie viewable on YouTube!

  • The St George temple is a historic building. It was completed in 1877 and is still used by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints today. Worthy members can enter the temple. Anyone can enjoy the beautiful, peaceful temple grounds. There is also a visitors center where you can learn more about how members worship inside the temple and about their faith. Definitely a must see in St George. You can see it from I-15 as you drive through town. The white exterior is beautiful with the contrasting red rock of St George.
  • Really neat Temple. I would recommend walking around its grounds it is really neat. Probably the nicest place in St. George. I would also recommend taking a tour at the visitors center. It is free!
