Temple Church is a late 12th century church in London located between Fleet Street and the River Thames, built for and by the Knights Templar as their English headquarters. At present two Inns of Court (Inner Temple and Middle Temple) both use the church.

The Temple Church has a distinctive design. Both parts were severely damaged by a bomb in 1941 and have been completely reconstructed. It houses the life-size stone effigies of nine 13th-century knights lying on the floor of the Round. Some of them are cross-legged.

In recent years the church has become a must-see for readers of The Da Vinci Code because a key scene was set here.
