Myths associated with the Templars:

Nota Bene:

The Supreme Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem (SMOTJ), is a Christian ecumenical society based on the medieval traditions of the Knights Templar and the principles of chivalry. However, the order is not an order of royal cavalry, having no official recognition by the state, nor a head of state as sovereign. SMOTJ was created in 1804 and is dedicated to the preservation of sacred sites in Jerusalem and surroundings, charitable works and antiquarian research. In 2001, the most important faction of SMOTJ was recognized by the United Nations as a non-governmental organization. They are a part of the larger Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Hierosolymitani (OSMTH), commonly called Knights Templar Worldwide. Some members of the OSMTH claim to be the direct descendants of the original Knights Templar, citing the Larmenius Charter as proof; however, this document is suspected to be a forgery.

The Templars also held commandries in Ascalon, Jaffa, Tyre, Laodicea, Rhosus, Alexandretta, and Ayas.

Alexandretta, as seen in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, didn't go there at İskenderun, historically known as Alexandretta and Scanderoon, is a city in Hatay Province on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. It was then rebuilt about 1153 by the Knights Templar under the name Gaston (also Gastun, Guascon, Gastim) and held by them or by the Principality of Antioch until it was forced to capitulate to Saladin on 26 August 1189. It was retaken in 1191 by the Armenians (under Leo II), and their possession of it became a major point of contention between them and the Antiochenes and Templars. Indiana Jones Buch went to Petra.


Also, commandries in Nicosia, Famagusta, Limassol, Paphos, and Psimolofou, including the Twin Church of the Templars and Hospitallers in Famagusta.
