The temple was a place to go to worship God and offer sacrifices. It is where God lived among the Jews.
What God said about it:
· The temple was in Jerusalem.
· God gave instructions about how to build the temple to David and Solomon.
· The Ark of the Covenant was inside the temple.
· Deut 12:13-14 says the only place to worship God was at the temple in Jerusalem.
I also had drawings of the temple here, but I didn't want to violate any copyright laws. I'll attach a photo of the card later, if I remember. This is the text, though.
