Salt Lake Temple, Salt Lake City Reviews - Write a Review

  • Was married to a devout Mormon for 13+ years. I thought it would be nice to get a tour of the temple when we went to visit her family in SLC but was told that there was absolutely NO way because I would not give the cult 10% of my hard earned salary plus two other requirements that I don't recall at the moment. I also asked ( or axed, if your black ), if I could see the "Golden Plates/Scripts", or even a picture of them that the church claims to have in the temple but instead I was shown a cartoon image of them from one of the cult missionaries. Oh well, the temple is beautiful at Christmas, for sure.

  • The Salt Lake Temple is an astounding architectural feat and a beautiful place to visit. The grounds surrounding the temple are pristine, which shows how respectful visitors are to this site. Regardless of your faith, it's a wonderful cultural experience to gaze upon the intricate towers and meet kind greeters who are happy to help answer any of your questions. Pro Tips: - Dress modestly to show respect to this important religious site - If you are curious about the Tabernacle's history, the greeters are happy to help - Visit at dusk to see how the sunset affects the already breathtaking backdrop of the Temple

  • Beautiful, and very peaceful place. We only had about 1-2 hour to soak in the AWESOMENESS but it was enough to enjoy the grounds and review some church history. The visitors center closed early but we were able to walk around the grounds until 10pm. We than walked to get late night good at the Cheesecake factory. It was a wonderful experience. Next time we will also visit the Catholic Cathedral that was nearby.

  • The most beautiful building in all of Utah, reflecting the very best in workmanship of the 19th century and the high ideals of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This building is a religious masterpiece. The interior is as beautiful as the exterior and the grounds. Although only practicing Mormons are permitted inside, there is a nice miniature showing the interior of the temple in a vistor center just south of the temple. I am partial to the Salt Lake Temple because I was married there; the staff of the temple was so gracious and accommodating to us. Stunning views of the temple from all angles and all times of year--one of the most photogenic buildings in the western United States.

  • I would recommend ALL people to come and experience the majesty of this beautiful temple. The outside inspires awe and wonder. Over 100 years ago, Mormon pioneers came to this place, and built this building. They toiled and labored many long years to build this structure by hand. I would recommend all come and see what devotion these Latter Day Saints put into such a majestic home built to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
