A Jerusalem temple floor of tile fragments from the Temple Mount – called “the most sacred site in Judaism” – has been restored for the first time by archaeologists.

The reassembled pieces of tiles were found at the site known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif, said the BBC News.

The tiles are said to be from the period of the Second Temple, during the time of King Herod, a “Roman king, who ruled the area in the first century BCE and expanded the site of the second Temple,” said SpreadIt. The temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD in the midst of a Jewish rebellion.
