View of the Chamber of the Utensils

Each morning the Kohanim would enter the Chamber of the Utensils to retrieve the ninety-three utensils used in the sacrificial service and set them out upon the silver table west of the Altar's ramp (see the last post).
Tiferes Yisrael (to Tamid 3:4 #25) writes that the location of this chamber is not known and that perhaps it resided within one of the tau'im (small rooms) surrounding the Sanctuary Building. It seems more likely, as Ezras Kohanim concludes, that this small chamber was located within the thickness of the Courtyard walls.
