    An Enjoyable Tour Even During Construction
    We had a great tour of the grounds, Assembly Hall, and the Tabernacle provided by two lovely LDS missionaries, complete with the traditional pin-drop demonstration in the Tabernacle. Most enjoyable and great to see after hearing about it all these years. The Temple was hidden with construction scaffolding for a major renovation and will be for some time, but what is available is worthwhile.

    A must see visit
    This year, and until 2025, the Temple itself is inferior structural work, but you can still visit the Square and visit the Tabernacle, Meeting House, Conference Center and other buildings. The grounds are immaculate and offer a nice park like setting...though probably not as quiet as it would be without the construction. I was particularly taken by the Meeting House, it reminds me of the old churches you are in New England. There are multilingual guides there to answer any questions. It is not a "hard selk" evangelical place.

    Not a lot to see right now.
    We visited temple square one evening while in town at a conference. Massive renovations. The temple is covered in scaffolding, and the visitor centers are gone. We did enjoy going in the tabernacle, the assembly hall and the conference center. We had nice views from the rooftop gardens at the conference center. Super nice young women missionaries hosting everywhere. I'm sure it'll be a couple of years yet before it's back to normal.

    A Beautiful Religious Site
    I have gone to Temple Square many times in my life. Every time has been an incredible experience. The grounds are immaculately kept, there is so much to do, and there is a calm and gentle spirit to be felt. Highly recommend visiting.

    Worth the visit
    Major construction on square now so it is closed. That said you can go to organ rehearsal at the Tabernacle and on Wednesday evenings the choir rehearses at one of the meeting halls. Both are free. The area you can see is quite lovely. This was included on a tour.

Currently undergoing comprehensive renovation it is hard to gauge the impact of Temple Square as an outsider, but with nearby hikes and plenty of shopping just feet away everyone can find something to enjoy. Visiting during a big weekend for the church everything was predictably crowded, but people were very friendly while free audio guides offered insight into the Church.

It's a pleasure to go somewhere and not have to listen to foul language and to talk to cheerful people from all over the world.

Cannot go inside. Unlike other temples in other religions you CANNOT go inside any Mormon temple unless you belong to that religion and have qualifications. Do not expect anything but gates and missionaries trying to talk you into joining the religion. Go to the mountains and hike instead.

If you visit this area, this is a must if your curious about Mormons stuff. Be mindful of the constructions in the area because we got lost. We just keep walking in circles because of the Google maps when we can just cross the street from the mall.

I really wanna see the Organ recital so we went early so we can take pictures inside. Their schedule changes so better check the website before visiting. It won't start till 1200, we went in around 1130 because someone already is practicing but they will tell you to leave then come back for the real performance which is fine. We walked around the church and read some history of the bell. Overall, it's a good experience. Highly recommended!
