Heichal (Sanctuary)

The Heichal is another name of the Kodesh (Holy), but is also a term used to refer to the entire enclosed building of the Beit HaMikdash (Temple). It is made of three rooms: the Ulam (hall), Kodesh (Holy) and the Kodesh HaKodashim (Holy of Holies). Each room increases in holiness, culminating with the holiest spot in the Beit HaMikdash, the Kodesh HaKodashim.
