Revelation, salvation, and the temple

Is the role of the temple to save, or to teach us how to approach God individually where real salvation can be found?  Can revelation or heavenly interaction occur independent of the temples?

“Many received heavenly visions, revelations, the ministering of holy angels, and the manifestations of the power of God…before the ordinances of the house of God were preached to the people.”

Brigham Young, Oct. 23, 1853, as cited in Mormon Hierarchy, p. 751
