Revelation 21:22

22 And I saw 1no 2atemple in it, for the bLord God the Almighty and the cLamb are its 2dtemple.

221 In the Old Testament the tabernacle of God was a precursor of the temple of God. New Jerusalem as the tabernacle of God (v. 3) will be the temple of God. This indicates that in the new heaven and new earth the temple of God will be enlarged into a city. That the three dimensions of the city are equal (v. 16) indicates that the city as a whole will be the Holy of Holies, the inner temple. Hence, there will be no temple in it.
