The Ezrat Kohanim, also known simply as the Azara, is a section of the courtyard in which only Kohanim (Priests) can enter. It is there that the  Mizbeach (altar) and the  Kiyor (washbasin) are found. Although generally only Kohanim may enter this area, any person who has a specific task to perform relating to the service may also enter.
