Lovely place to take the family to. Such peaceful grounds and lovely views of the fields. Set on a hill, the majestic looking temple is impressive and beautiful. Great place to ponder and meditate.

Stunning views for miles around the area because of its remarkable location - early morning and evenings quit ethereal and spiritual to gaze on and contemplate life.

Arrived in the middle of a downpour. The grounds although drenched were beautiful. Once the clouds lifted the view was amazing as the temple sits on a low hill. On a clear sunny day I imagine the view is even more stunning. Quiet and peaceful grounds, but entrance into the Temple is not permitted.

The New Zealand Temple in Hamilton was a fantastic experience. Gorgeous grounds and dramatically beautiful temple. Excellent Visitors Center with welcoming, helpful and informed people to show you around. The temple has very interesting history as does the surrounding property which used to be a church-owned boarding high school. Loved our visit and highly recommend visiting this beautiful place.

If you ever wondered what Mormons believe a quick trip to the Hamilton New Zealand Visitor center is the perfect answer. They will take you on a tour of the outside of the Temple and give you a great overview of the fascinating history of the LDS church in New Zealand.

Not too far from the city, definitely worth the car ride to go out and see the temple, beautiful during sunset!

Just 15 minutes from the CBD, the magnificent temple, situated at the top of a small hill, dominates the surrounding rural countryside. As this is an operational Latter Day Saints (ie Mormon) temple, you cannot see inside the temple, but there is a visitors center with parking right by the entrance. We were met by one of the Elders who... More

The temple itself looks pretty impressive but if you're going to go, wait till christmas when the lights are out as that's more impressive. The whole area of Temple View has been under renovations for most of 2016 and so the place is really starting to come together. The Temple itself is almost at the middle of the Temple View... More
