The Temple. In the middle of the model of Old Jerusalem is The Temple. I believe that this is the second Temple built around the time of Herod the Great during the years of 538-504 BC. This temple was then destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD. The first Temple was built by King Solomon, son of David, the first King of Israel. It was completed in 950 BC and lasted until 586 BC when it was destroyed by the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezar. This began the Babylonian exile of the Jews.
