Cedar City Utah Temple reviews
It was cold & windy outside, but warm & inviting inside. We saw people we know. The workers are cordial, & act like old friends. Even without an appointment, they fit you in. more »
When the temple first opened it was open to the public. I did not have any interest to go inside so have only seen the inside in pictures and it looks a bit antiquate inside but was built in modern..... more »
This temple is beautiful! The grounds are beautifully landscaped and it is up in a hill. The night we were there the sky was so magnificent it made for sone really pretty pictures. My daughters went in to do baptisms with their father and my son and I took pictures while we waited. There was a 3 hour wait so we had lots of time to walk around and take pictures.
Beautiful edifice dedicated to God and His work. Set in a beautiful location in Cedar City. Landscaping is also beautifully maintained and adds to the overall feeling of peace. Awesome opportunity to escape the cares of the world as you serve in the temple. Ample parking available around the building.
