    You are invited to enjoy the beauty and serenity of historic Temple Square. Take a complimentary tour of the grounds and buildings, available in 40 languages.

    This beautifully landscaped 10-acre plot of ground in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City is one of Utah's most visited attractions. Centerpiece of the Square is the 6-spired granite Salt Lake Temple, and adjacent to this imposing edifice is the domed Tabernacle, home of the famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the great Tabernacle organ.

    Two visitors' centers with interactive videos, films, Old and New Testament paintings, and an 11-foot replica of Thorvaldsen's Christus are additional attractions.

    Enjoy a free concert in the Assembly Hall, a charming Gothic-style building on the southwest corner of Temple Square. International and local artists perform every weekend and some weekdays.

    View the Mormon Handcart statue, the Seagull Monument, and other statuary and fountains throughout the lush flower-filled grounds.

    In the North Visitors' Center during the winter months, the public is invited to attend a series of family concerts entitled, "Saturday Family Night at Temple Square."

    Christmas on Temple Square is a special delight to enjoy, with hundreds of thousands of lights sparkling on trees and shrubs around the Square, a life-size Nativity scene, and musical groups performing nightly throughout December.

    Temple Square is within walking distance of two malls, the Salt Lake downtown business district, the Museum of Church History and Art, the Family History Library, the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, the Church Office Building, the Beehive House, and the Lion House.
