Description

Temple Square is the most popular attraction in the state with several million annual visitors. It occupies a full city block in the heart of Salt Lake City. High walls surround the complex, with wrought iron gates providing ingress on all four sides. Within is the magnificent Mormon Temple, the Mormon Tabernacle and Assembly Hall, as well as various monuments, statuary and two visitor centers.

The Mormon Temple
With a gleaming white quartzite facade and multiple spires that soar heavenward, the Mormon Temple is a truly inspiring building. Only LDS members are permitted within, but you may admire it from outside.

Mormon Tabernacle
Adjacent to the Temple is the intriguing domed Tabernacle, home to the world renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the 12,000-pipe Mormon Tabernacle Organ. Though the building has a somewhat understated exterior, it is truly splendid inside. It has such extraordinary acoustics that a pin dropped on stage with a full crowd can be clearly heard in back -- 170 feet away. You can witness this demonstration and a more purposeful demonstration of its acoustics at the regularly scheduled daily organ recitals. The choir also performs on a weekly basis.

Assembly Hall
Across from the Tabernacle is the attractive, gothic Assembly Hall. (Pictured below.) It boasts a beautiful hand carved wood interior and its own impressive 3,500 pipe organ. It is now mainly used for concerts, specifically the Temple Square Concert Series on Friday and Saturday nights.

The beautiful Temple Square frequently hosts performances and cultural events. Most of these performances are free to the public. Due to the very high demand for tickets to some events in past years, certain event tickets are distributed through a random selection process and must be requested online. For more information on Temple Square performances, click here.

Temple Square is open daily from 9am - 9pm. You can expect to be greeted by eager, cheerful, young Mormon women at every gate. You may also be invited to take one of the tours of the grounds that depart from the flagpole every 10 minutes.
