A:The gospels say that at the very moment Jesus died, the veil, or curtain, at the entrance to the Holy of Holies was rent from top to bottom ("And the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom." - Mark 15:38).

Mark might have been using an unreliable source, as Josephus, who would have been familiar with the Temple veil before the destruction of the Temple in 70 CE, describes the curtain and its images and colours in considerable detail (Wars of the Jews, Book 5), but makes no mention of any damage to it, or any repairs.

Another Answer:

God the Father split the Inner Veil down the middle spoken to by Matthew, Mark, and Luke - while referred to several times by Paul in Hebrews.

Jesus predicted that the city of Jerusalem would be destroyed. Forty years before it occurred, Jesus gave specifics to its destruction: Jesus spoke of the temple being destroyed and the manner of its destruction. Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came to Him to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to them, "Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down" (Matthew 24:1,2). Just as he predicted the Romans came in stripped the gold off the glorious temple and tore down the stones. After this he prophesied that they would be led away until a certain time, "they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. Finally Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled (Luke 21:24). Jesus also predicted that He would die, and who would be involved.
