On behalf of our more than 5,000 Knights and Dames of the Knights Templar worldwide, we welcome you to the International Website of the largest Knight Templar Order in the world, and the only Templar Order recognized in Special Consultative Status by the United Nations.
The Order of the Temple is a Christian ecumenical organization founded in 1804 by the physician Fabré-Palaprat with the support of Napoleon, and officially recognized in 1853 by Napoleon III. The Order operates on the basis of the traditions of the medieval Knights Templar.
Membership within the Order is geographically-based, therefore applications of interest from the OSMTH International site are referred on to your closest or most pertinent national Grand Priory.
