Building a Temple

Join us each month to see how the Payson Utah Temple was built!

All kinds of heavy equipment and machines are used to prepare the land so the temple can be built. Bulldozers level the ground. Excavators dig holes. Loaders and dump trucks move dirt and rocks. Once a big hole is dug, cement trucks pour the foundation. After the cement dries, the framework is built out of steel columns and beams. Then more cement is poured to make the temple’s inside walls.
