This cross stitch pattern download file contains:
- the counted cross stitch chart,
- two pages of detailed instructions,
- the color key,
- a color photo of the stitched temple, and

The design size of the temple is 137 by 55 squares and 137 by 64 squares if the name of the temple is included. If 14-count even-weave material is used, the finished temple will measure about 9¾” by 4”.
The temple was originally dedicated by President Heber J. Grant on October 23, 1927. It was the 7th temple in operation and the first temple in the state of Arizona. In 1945, it became the “Lamanite” temple with ordinances in Spanish, the first temple to offer a language other than English. The temple was renovated and rededicated on April 15, 1975, by President Spencer W. Kimball. On May 19, 2018, the temple was closed again for extensive renovation. It was rededicated on December 12, 2021, by President Dallin H. Oakes.
Photographs of the Mesa Arizona Temple are used as guides in the creation of the basic design. The trees, bushes, and landscape details can easily be changed, added to, or deleted according to the preference of the stitcher. The finished project can be personalized with names and dates using the alphabet and numbers provided in the pattern. The gift of a personalized, event-dated, attractively-framed rendering of the temple will be a life-long treasure for those who receive eternal blessings and promises in that sacred House of the Lord.
