Hand Painted Model Re-Creation of King Solomon's Second Temple Jerusalem


Model of King Solomon's Second Temple Jerusalem built 514 BCE destroyed 70 CE in the Jewish revolt against Rome.

This hand painted Model is based on the dimensions of King Solomon's temple discussed in the Talmud and Maimonides.
the focal point of the Temple Mount was a central courtyard containing the structure of the Beis Hamikdosh.

The Model depicts, in amazing detail, the Main hall of the temple (the Hechal) which also contained the holy of the holies,
the outer altar and inner sanctuary. The outer alter area was where the incense and sacrifices were brought up daily
by the Kohanim (priests).

The ark of the covenant (which contained the tablets with the Ten Commandments)were in the large building in the area
called The Holy of Holies, as its name implies, it was the most sacred part of the entire Temple.
Entry was forbidden except on Yom Kippur when the High Priest entered the inner sanctuary.

The only remnants of the Temple today is what is known as the Western Wall (the Kotel ).


 Jews from all over the world come and pray for their daily needs, heeling of the sick and for the final redemption
of the Jewish people with the rebuilding of the third temple .

The Western Wall was liberated from Jordan in the six-day war June 1967 as seen in these photos

In recent years the area near the wall was cleared of houses for visitors, worshippers and tourist.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque now sits in the are of the main hall and Jews are forbidden to enter the area by Jewish law.
The reason for not permitting Jews on the temple mount was that only Kohanim (priests) are allowed near
the holy of the holies since we do not know the exact spot of the holy of the holies it is restricted to Jews.


The Model of King Solomon's Temple is available at www.templemodels.com

The Model comes with a booklet that guides you through the Temple Courtyard and Sanctuary.
The Model depicts the main hall, The outer altar, Outer sanctuary, and inner Sanctuary in amazing detail.
