JERUSALEM AND THE TEMPLE MOUNT
The First Temple was built by King Solomon in seven years during the 10th century BCE in 957 BCE. It was the center of ancient Judaism and has remained a focal point for Jewish services over the millennia. The Temple replaced the Tabernacle of Moses and the Tabernacles at Shiloh, Nov, and Givon as the central focus of Jewish faith.
This First Temple was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE, and was rebuilt seventy years later by Cyrus the Great in 516 BCE. Centuries later, it was renovated by Herod in about 20 BCE, and this Second Temple was
subsequently destroyed by Titus and the Romans in 70 CE. Titus, son of Roman Emperor Vespasian, plundered and destroyed first the Holy Temple of Jerusalem, and then the Holy City, slaughtering hundreds of thousands of Jews.
The treasures of the Temple were enormous, including the treasury of the Temple, always compounded yearly through tithes paid by faithful Jews in Jerusalem, Judea, and all parts of the world where Jews had settled through dispersions, the gold furniture of the Temple, and the large number of gold vessels and utensils, the enormous thick sheets of gold that covered the walls and doors of the Temple, and the treasures of the wealthy that were safe kept in the Temple.
All of the outer walls still stand, although the Temple itself has long since been destroyed, and for many years it was believed that the western wall of the complex was the only wall standing.
