Layout Of Solomon's Temple

The original Temple of God in Jerusalem was constructed during the reign of King Solomon. Although far greater in size and magnificence, the structure was similar in layout to the small, portable Tabernacle In The Wilderness that it effectively replaced. After 7 years of construction, Solomon's Temple had a life of a little over 360 years, from about 950 to 587 B.C. when God permitted it to be looted and burned by the Babylonians (see Why Babylon? and King Nebuchadnezzar).
