Fig. 5. The Northern System


The Northern system: According to the hypothesis of Dr. Asher Kaufman proposing that the Temple was 110 meters North of the Dome of the Rock, the Holy of the Holies would have been located under the present-day Dome of the Tablets (or "Dome of the Spirits"). The ancient gate which lies beneath the present Golden Gate in the Eastern wall would then be the location of the ancient Shushan gate.
