I have to build sql- server security architecture doc based on our existing PROD server, what all it takes to build a doc from scratch. Is there any good website for the template for the doc?

Already you are Doing It Wrong -- define your security requirements, document an architecture that meets, them, then perform a gap analysis and show what must be done to make your production environment meet the security requirements.
Greg Askew already aimed you at some Microsoft documentation which will help.

I'm going to be brutally honest - If you need to come to Server Fault asking what all it takes to build a doc from scratch (and you're not just asking about formatting) you are not qualified to take on this task. Security is something that takes experience, and you may want to consider getting a professional DBA with security experience to help you draft your security policy and ensure your system conforms to it.
