Destruction of the Temple On the saddest day in the Jewish calendar, the 9th of Av, the Temple burns to the ground. His son Titus now takes over the siege of Jerusalem. Titus attacks just after Passover in the year 70 CE, battering the city with his catapults which propel a rain of stone, iron and fire onto the population. By then, the city defenders are weakened from hunger and perhaps even more so from internal strife. Even so, it takes Titus two months of intense fighting before he is able to breach the outer city walls reach the Temple Mount. The date for this event is 17th of the Hebrew month of Tammuz 1. To this day, religious Jews fast on the 17th of Tammuz in commemoration of this event. Roman historian, Deo Cassius, reports:

Legend[ edit ] In the “Gazetter of Mysore” , Benjamin Lewis Rice describes a legend behind the consecration of the temple. Kempe Gowda, while on a hunt, rode far away from his capital Yalahanka. Being tired, he rested under a tree and fell asleep. The local deity Someshwara appeared to him in a dream and instructed him to build a temple in his honor using buried treasure. In return the chieftain would receive divine favor. Kempe Gowda found the treasure and dutifully completed the temple.
In a dream, a man appeared before him and told him that a linga universal symbol of the god Shiva was buried under the spot he was sleeping. He was instructed to retrieve it and build a temple.

The sanctum is connected to a closed mantapa hall whose walls are decorated with pilasters and sculptures in frieze.

The Hidden Secrets of the Temple Mount by Tuvia Sagiv One of the unsolved problems in the investigation of Jerusalem is locating the site of the holy temples. A three-dimensional study of the location of the temple and its various levels is helpful. By using a 3D view we will be able to examine the spatial relationships between functions outside the area and their relationships to the temple.
We will also examine by comparison various suggested temple locations with the historical literature describing ancient Jerusalem with what we know today of its topography.

From the right to education, to the closing of institutions and the movement toward self-determination, Pennsylvanians with disabilities, family members, and advocates have paved the way for national policies that have led to widespread reform. There is much to be learned from a generation of advocates and self-advocates who risked much to ensure the safety and freedom of people with disabilities. If their memories and stories are not preserved, they will disappear forever.
To that end, the Visionary Voices Leaders Lessons Legacy project of the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University strives to collect the stories of those who played a part, or were first hand witness, to the events that changed the lives of people with intellectual disabilities in Pennsylvania. These first-person accounts of our history are a vital resource for students, teachers, scholars, people with disabilities, families, policymakers and members of the media.
The project is in two parts: Interviews with People with Intellectual Disabilities, Family Members and Advocates In its initial phase, the Visionary Voices Leaders Lessons Legacy website will feature approximately 30 videotaped interviews recorded over a month period. These first interviews will focus on leaders in Pennsylvania’s Intellectual Disability Movement; as this group ages, we run the risk of forever losing the stories that shaped the way supports and services are provided to people with disabilities in Pennsylvania and around the country.
Interviews will focus on four areas: As the project continues beyond the month period, interviews will be added to each category. Visionary Voices has also been commissioned by the Philadelphia Office of DisAbility Services to collect a series of interviews with leaders in Philadelphia’s Intellectual Disability Community.

In , the young English architect Charles Robert Cockerell , finishing his education on his academic Grand Tour , and Baron Otto Magnus von Stackelberg removed the fallen fragmentary pediment sculptures. Minor excavations of the east peribolos wall were carried out in during reconstruction of the last temple.
The area of the sanctuary was defined and studied during these excavations. The area under the last temple could not be excavated, however, because that would have harmed the temple. In addition, significant remains from the Bronze Age were detected in pockets in the rocky surface of the hill. From to , an extensive second German excavation under Dieter Ohly was performed, leading to the discovery in of substantial remains of the older Archaic temple in the fill of the later terrace walls.
