The Eagle Gate is a bit underwhelming, since it's simply suspended over the intersection and the only real viewing of it is from the sidewalk of a busy city street. However, it's right next to the Lion House, the former home of LDS church president,...More

This stunning ART piece is a true symbol of the beauty of Salt Lake City. It spans the main artery of traffic for the beautiful capitol city. State Street leads to the Capitol building, itself a wonderful sight to tour. South Temple street is the...More

A short walk from Temple Square takes you past the Lion House, the Beehive and on to the Eagle Gateway.All of which are of historical interest concerning Brigham Young. Perhaps as three individual sights, you might not make a special journey to see them, but...More

Well - it's there. If your walking around the City Creek Centre and Temple Square then you'll probably see it. Maybe take a photo - then move on. Not worth going out of your way to see.

It is more of a landmark and not an attraction if you are walking downtown. It is nice to see but would not go out of my way just to see it. If you are nearby, take a few seconds to see but do not...More

Aside from the fact you are standing on a street corner with traffic rushing by, the monument is impressive. Just nothing to write home about. The buildings around it dwarf it

It's historic and used to sit directly in front of Brigham Young's home. He was both the territorial governor and the Mormon Church president. Eagle gate has been moved a bit to the east and spans an intersection on south temple and state street. It's...More
