Beautiful, peaceful place. Highly recommend you visit Temple Square. Beautiful flowers everywhere, awesome feelings as you sit and contemplate. The temple is, without a doubt, a most glorious tribute to the Lord.

Guides offer history of construction and maybe a bit of a commercial on being a Mormon. Unable to enter, that was a disappointment.

While we couldn't enter the Temple because we are not Mormon, we enjoyed the architecture of the building and took various pictures of it.
