Temple Church

The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon or short the Templars were a Cathology military order – one of the most powerful and massively engaged in the crusades. A building at London, England which was of great importance to them was the Temple Church, an Anglican built in the 12th century CE. It was also used for negotiations that lead to the signing of the Magna Carta.

The Temple Church consists of two sections: the main round church, created based on the design of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem, Israel and an afterwards created rectangular building. The round church contains the graves of nine mediavel templar knights but it was found out that these are empty. Currently the building is used as church and can be visited when there is no divine service ongoing.
