I am reading a book and it mentions Herod building a great temple to himself and to God.  I did a search <topic:second temple><person:Herod the Great> 

This search found zero results.....I assume an and was used and its not "the second temple" that Herod built

This great temple that Herod built was ??  masada ??   another iln Jerusalem?  outside Jerusalem?

There is a Factbook entry for Herod's Temple. Perhaps that would be a good place to start. You could also begin with the Topic guide, again using Herod's Temple.

Herod the Great started renovating the temple in 20BC. It was located on the temple mount in Jerusalem.

And as a search you can search for the "thing"

The roughly 600-year Second Temple period is framed by the destruction of the First Temple (to be rebuilt ca. 520–515 B.C.E.) and the Babylonian Exile of 586, on the one side, and the destruction of the Second Temple in the course of a Jewish revolt against Rome in 66–73 C.E., on the other.

Do a search for "Herod the great" and you will find all you want to know.

Besides the temple in Jerusalem, Herod also built a temple in the Banias area, as well as one in Caesarea....but not "to God," but Caesar.
