The early pioneers who settled the Salt Lake Valley could never have imagined what a place Temple Square would become. Today, the iconic Salt Lake Temple and Tabernacle are known worldwide, and many people come to the beehive state each year to visit these and other iconic landmarks in the 35-acre complex.
Now, Temple Square is evolving again. For the first time, visitors have an official, 21st-century resource for helping plan their next visit: templesquare.com.
The site soft-launched in February of this year and will be officially introduced to different Temple Square departments on May 5th. It includes several helpful resources for visitors, whether they've been to Temple Square a hundred times or they're a first-time visitor.
Did you know Temple Square hosts birthday celebrations? That you can interact with your ancestors at its newest attraction? Or that there are seven different tours you can take, including the fan-favorite garden tours? Find these gems and more as you explore! Templesquare.com offers a free planning guide that includes "everything you need to know about getting to Temple Square, where to go, and what to do."
The new site also includes a blog that highlights the displays, events, and businesses on and around Temple Square. (Fun fact we found as we read: there's a splash pad for kids just steps away from the South Visitor's Center.)
Those with further questions about their visit to Temple Square can contact the general information desk at 801-531-1000 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
