Temple

Temple. The site of the Law Courts and London's lawyers stands on land once owned by the Knights Templars, members of a military and religious Order founded in Jerusalem in about 1118. Their task was to protect the holy places and their name derives from the place where they had their quarters, near the site of Solomon's Temple. The name Temple was also given to their quarters in London and Paris. The Pope dissolved the Order in 1312 and the buildings have been used by the legal profession from the 14th century.

Prior to the station's opening the name NORFOLK STREET was considered, but it was opened as TEMPLE on 30 May 1870.
