Solomon's Porch (John 10:23; Acts 3:11; 5:12), was a colonnade, or cloister, probably located on the eastern side of the temple's Outer Court in Jerusalem, not to be confused with the Royal Portico which was on the southern side of the temple in the area currently occupied by the Al Aqsa Mosque, named after Solomon, King of Israel.

It is not mentioned in connection with the first temple, but Josephus mentions a porch in Herod's Temple.
