While you can't get into the Temple itself it is worth taking the 45 minute walking tour of Temple Square. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and open to all sorts of questions. They were very honest and answered all questions.

This is a very beautiful building and has a very interesting history. The whole Temple Square area provides great photo opportunities and it is a very peaceful place.

Beautiful, peaceful place. Highly recommend you visit Temple Square. Beautiful flowers everywhere, awesome feelings as you sit and contemplate. The temple is, without a doubt, a most glorious tribute to the Lord.

Beautiful buildings and magnificent gardens. A must see at different seasons as the garden changes. Also, water features.

Not sure what the LDS is hiding but you can't go into the temple, It is locked up like a fortress. The visitors center has a small model of what it looks like inside but it would be nice to see it first hand. I...More

This is a beautiful building from the outside, but no one is allowed inside. I can understand, because there are always baptisms or weddings going on, but it would be nice if a little time was set aside each day for tours. There is a...More

Guides offer history of construction and maybe a bit of a commercial on being a Mormon. Unable to enter, that was a disappointment.
