This is a large Salt Lake Temple made from paper. (cardstock) You can print this from your home computer – You do NOT need a 3d printer to make this.

This is not a typical LDS paper toy. Usually, LDS paper toys are really simple and can be put together quickly and easily. This isn’t that. The real Salt Lake Temple took 40 years to build. This temple makes you feel that way, but it only takes a day or two.

But, if you are looking for a 1-foot long, detailed, Salt Lake Temple that you can print from your own paper printer, you’ve come to the right place. Check out the “Quick Look” to see it all coming together in time lapse.



note: If you are looking for a smaller/simple temple or other temples like this, search “temples” on the LDS Paper Toy main page.

Temple Symbols

Have fun exploring the symbols on the Salt Lake Temple that you may not notice if you were on the ground, looking at the real thing.


Did you know that the Big Dipper is on the back of the temple? You can even challenge the children to find it on your model.
