    Every building in the square is a gem in its own right with history, art, religion and music/acoustics! Even if you're not Mormon it's really amazing and worth spending some time exploring!

    A gem in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. All visitors are welcome to peruse the grounds. Beautiful and peaceful anytime of year. Some of the best Christmas light displays in December.

    Great for a stroll through the gardens around the Temple and to go inside the tabernacle. But be prepared to be approached by 'LDS' folks. Just engage them politely and briefly so they get the hint.

    Christmas lights at Temple Square are heavenly! The gardens are beautiful all year round but at Christmas and Spring they are amazing.

    A pretty cool thing at temple square is the bell that hung originally in the Nauvoo temple and was carried across the plains by the pioneers. Western edge of the square by the Assembly Hall.

    Go to the fourth floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, step out of the elevator, and you will find a large map of the world, with photos of every temple in the world, with buttons and lights.

    Make sure to tour the visitor's centers. They're open to the public and are very uplifting places to be. The South center has a scaled replica of the inside of the temple - very interesting. Read more

    Soulless, charmless and the main temple closed to visitors. Add to that the pestering Mormon proselytisers and you get a case in point of a failed tourism experience.
