NEW!  The Temple in 3D by Norma Robertson
Please Join Me As We Walk Through Herod's Temple and Fort Antonia in 3D, a narrated video series of Herod's Temple.
Note: This Temple location is in accordance with the many sources available to us. I.E. The scriptures. The many maps, drawn up by the early explorers of the 1800's that were allowed to enter the underground passages.  Josephus, a Jewish historian, that not only grew up in Jerusalem, but recorded the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. Also the Jewish information contained in the Mishnah concerning the aqueduct. And of course the ruins and many artifacts uncovered by archaeologist, Benjamin Mazar, and  through his grand daughter, Eilat Mazar. I created this as if a model built on a green table top, only in this case you get to enter and walk through, and fly over,  that model.   The model is designed according to the map below with the lower court on the Ophel outside the south wall of the Temple Mount as it is today.

The lines in Green representing the old Temple area (Solomon's Temple) would have been removed as the Herodians

extended the temple courts, except for the east wall, gate and Solomon's porch, which Herod refused to rebuild..
