The cemetery has been used by the Templar community since 1878. The residents of the German colony and the leaders of the Templar movement are buried there. Members of the community who were previously buried in the German colonies in Sarona and Wilhelma are buried in a mass grave.
The need to build a Templar cemetery stemmed from the Protestant bishops opposition to burying Templars in the Mount Zion cemetery, claiming they were not Christians.
