This building is old, yet full of history. There is an interesting visitors center near it with all sorts of information about Jerusalem, Jesus Christ, and the Mormon church. If you are in the area, it is worth stopping by just to see the architecture and craftsmanship that went into this temple. Do not be too scared of being flagged down by missionaries. As long as you dress in decent clothes and act like you are familiar with the area, nobody will bother you while you look at this historical Utah site.
So here's the thing, I'm have nothing to do with this religion but I absolutely love going here. My friends and family come here to walk around and I bring my little dog. So happy he can walk with us! Yeah, I love it here
It is undeniably beautiful, with stunning gardens and at least one wedding party getting their photos there every time I've been. However, the very air is heavy with heresy. Christ is our only priest, and we are temples of the Holy Spirit. There is no need of an earthly temple, any more than there is need to continue to earn one's righteousness after Christ has died and paid for all His people's sins for all eternity.
Pay ale ale friends! This temple building is gorgeous! There is nothing like seeing the wonderfully painted murals of the Creation Room, the Garden Room, even the stain glass windows in one of the sealing rooms! (Sorry you need a special pass to get in...I highly recommend you get one) Down right brings you to ponder holier things...like Christ not needing a temple, because He loves you unconditionally, as you are. Things like that...
Whether your Mormon or not, the Salt Lake City temple is filled with history, beauty, and sacrifice by many people to make it happen. The landscape is amazingly well kept. It's a quiet peaceful place. The visitor center is filled with information and friendly guides to answer questions.
