Guarding the Mikdash


"We are commanded to guard the Beit haMikdash [Temple in Jerusalem]. Although there is no fear of enemies or bandits there, this guarding is a matter of honoring it. A palace with guards is different from a palace without guards."

(Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Beit haBechirah 8:1)

Have a great day,
