If, as the Rambam says, Olam Haba is something that comes after the days of Mashiach and the ressurrection of the dead, and if it is a completely spiritual reality - as I read in his Treatise on Resurrection, will there still be a Beit Hamikdash on that time? And if not, how are the prophecies that state that the Beit Hamikdash will stand forever (leolam) to be understood?

Isn't a Bet Hamikdash a part of physical reality? Welcome to Mi Yodeya! I hope you stick around and enjoy. – Double AA Apr 9 '13 at 2:46
I'll second @DoubleAA's welcome. Please consider registering your account, which will give you access to more of the site's features. Here, you're asking assuming some premises. Are they true (if so, can you support them?), or would you like us to answer based on a hypothetical? – msh210 Apr 9 '13 at 5:05
