Solomon's Porch, Portico or Colonnade (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, named after Solomon, King of Israel, and 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.

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