The ark was hidden by King Josiah in hidden tunnels beneath the Temple Mount (See Chronicles II 35:3). Most of the other vessels of the Temple were destroyed or taken to Rome. Don't worry, they will all be replaced with the rebuilding of the 3rd Temple!

Ark of the Covenant

Posted by: Anonymous, Springfield, MO/USA on Nov 18, 2004

If the Ark was hidden in the Temple Mount in Chronicles II, what did the High Priest pour the blood of the sacrifice on during Yom Kippur?

Editor's Comment

On the "Even Hashitiya" (the Foundation Rock) which was on the floor of the Holy of Holies. 
The final book of the Bible. This book summarizes the events described in the first 23 books of the Bible, from Creation until the destruction of the 1st Temple.
1. Usually a reference to the Holy Temple which was/will be situated in Jerusalem. 1st Temple was built in 825 BCE and was destroyed in 423 BCE. The 2nd Temple was built in 350 BCE and was destroyed in 70 CE. The 3rd Temple will be built by the Messiah. 2. A synagogue.
