  • 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. The south visitors center has a model of the interior of the temple, which I highly recommend. The north visitors center has tours of temple square which is a must. 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.
