The St. George temple and visitor center is a must for anyone visiting St. George. The St. George temple was the first completed temple in Utah. Like Temple Square in Salt Lake City, the St George temple grounds are large, providing walking paths, places to sit and ponder and a magnificent visitor center.
St George Temple Visitor Center
While the temple is not open to the public, the visitor center welcomes guests. Admission is free. It is a pretty building with several exhibits and pretty views of the temple.
One of the best exhibits is the Christus Statue of the resurrected Lord. Similar to the one at Temple Square in Salt Lake City, the Christus stands 11 feet tall. There is also a recording that accompanies the Christus.
Other exhibits include the history of the temple and how it was built, pictures of Christ during His life and ministry, copies of the Book of Mormon in many languages, and a model of Jerusalem at the time of Christ’s ministry.
The St. George temple and visitor center is located at 250 E 400 S St George Ut. The visitor center is on the south east corner.
