Bustling Temple Square is home to a number of tourist attractions, including a large complex owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Family History Library, the largest genealogical library in the world, is a favorite stop. Here, you can delve into your ancestors' past. If you are not a Mormon, you cannot enter the Salt Lake Temple that dominates the square, but you still can explore the grounds and admire the exterior of this striking, 19th-century structure. Pop into the visitor center to see a diorama of the inside of the temple. Learn more about Mormonism at the Church History Museum, home to a large collection of Latter-day Saint artifacts and artwork. Approach a missionary or volunteer docent for a free tour of the square. Using our online itinerary creator, Salt Lake City attractions like Temple Square can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Temple Square Reviews
The Christmas lights are always amazing here!! We love walking around and visiting all the different areas. more »
Beautiful buildings and grounds, located right in downtown Salt Lake. You don't have to be Mormon to go there, and there are guides who will show you aound. You can't go into the temple itself... more »
There is such an amazing spirit of peace and calmness here. This is beautiful. Make sure to go into the visitor center and watch some of the films. Go into the Tabernacle and literally hear a pin drop from 100 yards away. Learn the fascinating history of the early saints and find out who your ancestors are with the family history center. There is so much to do and see here and even more importantly there is so much to feel here.
Very, Very beautiful place to visit. There’s always something and somewhere to look at. The people are very kind and generous to take their time for their visitors. The scenery is vibrant and breathtaking. And the organ recitals are also very fun to listen to. 5 star all the way!
