Solomon’s Portico

Solomon’s Portico

A colonnade thought to have been situated along the east side of the Temple enclosure built by Herod the Great as part of his restoration of the Temple of Jerusalem. If so, the portico would have been directly above the Kidron Valley, facing the Mount of Olives. Jesus was familiar with this porch (John 10:23), and, after his resurrection, the apostles gathered there with the people (Acts 3:11; Acts 5:12).
