The vessels of a Beit haMikdash


"We create utensils for the Beit haMikdash:

"An altar for burnt offerings and other offerings, and a ramp on which to ascend to the altar, and its site is before the ulam, set off to the south;

"A sink and its base, from which the kohanim sanctify their hands and feet for service, and its site is between the ulam and the altar, set off to the south, to the left of a person entering the Mikdash;

"An altar for incense, a menorah and a table, all three of which are in the Sanctuary before the Holy of Holies."

(Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Beit haBechirah 1:6)
