From Dan. 11:31

“Holy Place” is a designation of the Temple.

“Place” is the Greek topos (#5117 τόπος). The word “place” can refer to any place specifically mentioned; however it was also one of the designations of the Temple in Jerusalem, which it is here in Matthew 24:15 and other places in the New Testament as well (cp. Matt. 24:15; John 4:20, 11:48, 19:20; Acts 6:13-14, 21:28). Also see Kittel’s Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, and Secrets of Golgotha, second edition, by Ernest Martin, chapter 8.
