Reconstruction of Solomons Temple - Jerusalem

The French arcitect responsible for this reconstruction of the Temple from the north-west corner of the Court of the Israelites has followed unreservedly Ezekiel's ground plan. Far more problematical, however, is the elevation; but all known precepts of Phoenician art have been carefully observed. The low building flanking the inner court on the north, together with part of a gateway, has been left unreconstructed in order to give a free view of the great Sanctuary in the centre.
