Temple -

The great building in Jerusalem, in which sacrifices were offered to God. The First Temple was built by King Solomon (cf. I Kings). It was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BCE and the Israelites exiled to Babylonia. When they returned, they began construction of the Second Temple in 515 BCE In 20 BCE, Herod remodeled and greatly enlarged the Second Temple. It was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE (BlueThread)

In the ancient world, temples were the centers of outward religious life, places at which public religious observances were normally conducted by the priestly professionals. In traditional Judaism, the only legitimate Temple was the one in Jerusalem, built first by King Solomon around 950 BCE, destroyed by Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar around 587/6 BCE, and rebuilt about 70 years later. It was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE.(The Israel Project)

Ornate buildings set aside for the performance of secret ceremonies of the LDS Church. Only Mormons with a Temple Recommend may enter such buildings. Although the number of LDS Temples has increased dramatically in recent years, they are still only available mostly in larger metropolitan areas around the world. Thus individuals wishing to take part in Temple ceremonies must often travel long distances to do so. (isitso).
