Building a Temple

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

The walls, ceilings, and woodwork have to be carefully sanded and dusted, caulked, and spackled. Once the walls and wood are perfectly smooth, everything can be painted. Some walls are painted in a solid color. Then stencils are taped on so gold leaf and different colors can be painted in beautiful patterns. On other walls, artists paint murals. In some temples, these murals are actually scanned from other temple walls, printed onto big sheets, and hung as wallpaper!
