Temple Church

information about united-kingdom  London - United Kingdom

It was named after the Knights Templar, who were gifted the land in about 1160. The Templar's church survived with a round nave of 1160-85, modelled on the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The church was damaged in World War II, but was reconstucted.
The church was the chapel serving the London Headquarters to the Knights Templars. After the end of the Templars, the church changed hand many times, from the Order of St john, coolleges of Lawyers, Henry VIII...
The Temple Church was a big feature in the Book of Dan Brown and the film "The Da Vinci Code", it has now triple the numbers of visitors since the book was published, and since the film is comming out, numbers are expected to rise.
It was very nice to walk in this church, it is so well decorated, it was very impressive to see the effegies to the Knights.
