The Ezra Temple that was refurbished and embellished by Herod must have been an awesome site! Historians tell us it was on of the most impressive buildings in the world. So you might expect that people would be awestruck by it. The problem is that they didn't recognize the true nature of Jesus the Messiah. They admired a temple that was destroyed 40 years after the death of Christ, but they missed the Messiah who will reign forevermore!
