A '''[[Jedi]] council''' consists of several Jedi: Knights, Masters, or both. They reside in the four smaller spires of the Jedi Temple on [[Coruscant]], where they assign tasks to Jedi and promote [[Padawan]] learners to Jedi Knights. In the days of the [[Old Republic]], Jedi Master [[Yoda]] led the High Council.

The Jedi Temple was built over a sacred mountain granted to the Jedi Order by the [[Galactic Republic]] after the [[Great Hyperspace War]] in 5,000 [[BBY]].  Originally a simple monastery, it was built up over the centuries and, after the destruction of the library planet of [[Ossus]] during the [[Great Sith War]] (about 4,000 [[BBY]]), it became the home of the Jedi councils and the headquarters of the Jedi Order.

The central Temple Spire is the tallest and most important, a sacred place and repository of the ancient texts of the founding Jedi.  It is surrounded by four smaller Council spires.
