Jerusalem: Gd's eternal home


"Once the Sanctuary [mikdash] was built in Jerusalem, building a house for Gd, in which to bring offerings, became prohibited.

"There is no eternal house other than in Jerusalem, on Mount Moriah, regarding which Divrei haYamim I 22:1 states, 'And David said: This is the house of Gd, and this is the altar for ascending offerings for Israel.' And Tehillim 132:14 says, 'Here is My place of rest, forever.'"

(Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Beit haBechirah 1:3)
