    Temple Church sits within the Inner Temple of the Inns of Court, and was
    originally consecrated in 1185 as the spiritual and actual home of the
    Knights Templar. The church has a long and powerful history, and
    survives as one of London's oldest original churches despite its
    association with the once powerful order of the Templars. The
    magnificent chancel of the church was built in the 13th century at the
    behest of Henry III, who buried his infant son here and originally
    intended to be laid to rest in the chancel himself. The
    Knights Templar originally built the entire Temple complex as a seat of
    power independent from the Crown, and the residences provided a focal
    point for the barons as they renegotiated the Crown's power through the
    Magna Carta of 1215. Despite this independent ethos, the Templars grew
    close to the Crown, although even closer to Rome, and eventually the
    order was to suffer from being identified with rebellious barons who
    banked their money at the Temple to avoid tithes, and with a primary
    loyalty to the Pope. Henry
    III himself fell out with the Templars over money and loyalty and the
    beginning of the Order's decline was marked by his decision to move his
    own grave back to Westminster Abbey. The order was finally disbanded by
    Henry VIII and many of the residencies destroyed during the Dissolution
    of the Monasteries. However, the beautiful church was preserved as an
    Anglican seat and has survived, occassionally propped up and restored,
    since then. Miraculously the Temple Church survived the heavy
    city-centred bombing of World War II with only a burnt roof and a few
    cracked pillars. Today
    the church is still a vibrant Anglican community with Sunday services,
    and the Master of the Temple is a coveted Anglican position, with
    holders giving regular talks to the public on theology. The church has
    always had a fantastic choir and the magnificent acoustics attract
    musicians from far and wide, including Paul Tortelier who made his
    recording of the complete Bach Cello Suites there in 1983. This
    beautiful church boasts an ancient and exciting history, and the
    architecture speaks of the wealth and power invested in the church.
    There are magnificent tombs, a splendid nave, and a majestic choir, in
    what is also one of the oldest churches in London. A quiet and inspiring spot in the heart of the City.
