Create an itinerary including St. George Temple
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.

  • Unexpectedly, i had an opportunity to visit the visitor's center. It started with an audio prayer as i sat in front of the statue of Jesus Christ. Then, one of the Elders, Robert was his name, gave me a quick tour and some religious insights and history about their church. Pity, my visit was short-lived but will definitely visit again. I was gifted with a book, The Book of Mormon, and a pamphlet about the Prophet Joseph Smith.
  • Great place to visit to learn about the history of St. George. There is also a visitors center that provides free tours. If you are passing by, be sure to visit this temple.
