Q&A: Where is the Ark of the Covenant?
Q: What happened to the Ark of the Covenant? Where is it today?
A: The Ark of the Covenant contained the first and second tablets of the Ten Commandments. In addition, the Torah scroll that Moses wrote was, according to the Biblical commentator Rashi on Deuteronomy 31:26, either attached to the outside of the Ark, or was also inside the Ark. The Ark was intentionally hidden by the king Yoshiyahu in a hiding place under the Temple Mount.
