Solomon's Temple (First Temple)

According to the Bible, Solomon's Temple, also known as the First Temple, was the Holy Temple in ancient Jerusalem, on the Haram al-Sharif (Temple Mount) (also known as Mount Zion), before its destruction by Nebuchadnezzar II after the Siege of Jerusalem of 587 BCE. There is no archaeological evidence for the existence of Solomon's Temple. According to the biblical sources, the temple was constructed under King Solomon in the tenth century BCE.
