Salt Lake Temple, which took 40 years to build, is sacred ground for Mormons. While the interior is not open to the public, you can come to the center of the city and photograph the Gothic and Romanesque building that takes up 4 ha (10 acres) and stroll its landscaped gardens. Put Salt Lake Temple and other Salt Lake City attractions into our Salt Lake City trip maker tool, and watch your holiday take shape.

A reverent and sacred experience. There are no tours to visit inside the temple. But they do have two visitors centers which explain so much.

Plan a few hours and enjoy the flowers too.
A sacred place where worthy members of The Church of Jesus Christ are able to be sealed together as families and where they can perform sacred ordinances like baptism and family dealings on behalf of those who have died. You can feel close to God here, and receive revelation from Him here. It is beautiful inside and out, and the blessings available here are the most beautiful.
