Enjoy England travel photography and fall in love with Great Britain tourism. Visit Temple Church in London, England. London is a spectacular place to take travel photographs.

Temple Church was built by the Knights Templar, the order of crusading monks who were tasked to protect pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land during the 12th century.

The portion of the Church known as the Round was consecreted in 1185 by the patriarch of Jerusalem himself, Heraclius. Henry II may very well have been at the ceremony as well. It was supposed to echo the Church of the Holy Sepulchur, one of the holiest cathedrals in Christendom.

Once thought to be tombs of crusading knights, the stone effigies were soon deemed to only be depictions of knights as there are no bodies under the tombs.
