In the Holy of Holies

Here the High Priest stood at the opening of the Holy of Holies. He now turns and faces the south with his left side along the length of the curtain, so that he may walk to the center of the room to stand in the place known as "between the poles" - between the two poles of the Ark of the Testimony. However, the Holy of Holies was empty... for the Ark of the Testimony did not stand in the Second Temple.
