The Temple Institute's Holy Temple Visitors Center


Bringing the Awesome World of the Holy Temple to an Unprecedented Level of Understanding


The Temple Institute's Holy Temple Visitors Center includes a highly advanced, state-of-the-art presentation of the Temple-ready sacred vessels created by the Institute, garments of the High Priest, oil-paintings depicting aspects of the Divine service of the Holy Temple and a model of the Holy Temple Complex. Visitors will also be able to see a scaled-down stone altar, made in accordance with Torah law, transportable and completely ready for use on the Temple Mount.

Additionally, the new center affords guests the opportunity to view all new video productions, (currently under preparation), describing the history of the Holy Temple, its role in the prophetic time in which we are living and our role as members of the human race who seek the rebuilding of the Holy Temple and the fulfillment of the words of Isaiah: "For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations." (Isaiah 56:7)

The new center also includes a spacious gift shop.

Location: 40 Misgav Ladach St., Jewish Quarter (Directly above the Yehudah HaLevi stairs which lead from the Jewish Quarter to the Western Wall Plaza.)

VISITS TO THE NEW CENTER ARE CONDUCTED ONLY IN GROUPS, led by a guide. The guided visit is approximately one hour and individuals who arrive at the Center are joined to a group. Guided groups in English take place at 15:15, Sunday through Thursday. Guided groups in Hebrew take place at 12:30, Sunday through Thursday, and at 10:30, Friday mornings.
