Salt Lake City, Temple, Mormon, LDS, Temple Square, Utah

Temple Square

Visit Temple Square to experience Mormon culture and pioneer heritage with guided tours featuring historic sites, exhibits, gardens, and the largest genealogy library of its kind in the world.

Temple Square

Salt Lake City

Historic Temple Square, (801) 240-2534, is bounded by North, West and South Temple streets. Salt Lake City was laid out with Temple Square as its heart. The 10-acre area contains the famed Salt Lake Temple built between 1853 and 1893 and the Salt Lake Tabernacle housing the huge pipe organ, which accompanies the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The public is invited to the Choir's free weekly Sunday television and radio broadcast in the Tabernacle at 9:30 a.m. (audience must be seated by 9:15), the choir's rehearsal every Thurs. at 8 p.m., and the organ recital at noon Mon.- Sat. and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Temple Square has two visitor centers and offers complimentary tours daily. A courtesy van scheduled each half hour between 9:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. travels from the Salt Lake International Airport to Temple Square for a guided tour, then returns. The van trip and tour require a minimum of 90 minutes between connecting flights, www.templesquarehospitality.com.

West of Temple Square are the Museum of Church History and Art, (801) 240-3310, which exhibits art and relics related to the Mormon church from the mid-1800's to the present. Immediately south, is the Family History Library, (801) 240-2331, housing one of the largest collections of genealogical records in the world. Just east of Temple Square is a plaza and Brigham Young Monument, a larger-than-life statue of the colonizing church leader. It was erected in 1897.

Across the plaza at South Temple Street, The Joseph Smith Memorial Building, (801) 240-1266, is a community center operated by the LDS Church. Tours are offered daily, as well as some films. The building also has a chapel, two restaurants, and a public facility introducing visitors to genealogical research. The Joseph Smith Memorial Building was formerly the Hotel Utah and its lobby has been elegantly restored with a stained glass ceiling and intricate mouldings.

The Beehive House, (801) 240-2681, east of Temple Square on South Temple, and the Lion House next door are the homes of Mormon Church president Brigham Young and his large family. Tours are offered of the antiques-filled buildings. Lunch and dinner are served at the Lion House.
