Solomon's Colonnade in the temple: meeting place of the early church after Pentecost and before the stoning of Stephen
Above Left: Solomon's Colonnade is the columned area on the right (southeast) side of the temple in the picture on the left (Jerusalem AD 66 Model, Holyland Hotel, Jerusalem). It was so named because the outside wall was older than Herod's Temple, and thus was thought to be part of Solomon's Temple. Above Right: Rock wall outside "Solomon's Colonnade" area today; it is obviously older than the rest of the wall.
Photo at left is a modern aerial view of Temple Mount. Solomon's Colonnade was, generally, the white courtyard in the lower left of the area within the wall.
