I thought it was based on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre also round.

To be fair to the Knights Templar (which is more than they deserve) it was a common mistake amongst the crusaders. The story about it being based on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is just a later cover story to spare everyone's blushes. I called them "dicks" for comic effect. Odd that you picked me up on that, but let "hacked their murderous way" go by unchallenged...
