A very useful reference work, well researched.
Mr. Af Milton
Author also reconstructs the geography of ancient Jerusalem and then explains biblical passages within the geographical context, this is very well done.
Joe Keenan
Eyewitness reports from the time attest to the fact that what most consider the Temple Mount is actually the remains of the Roman Fortress Antonia.

For those familiar with the Old Testament descriptions of the first two temples and the New Testament references to Herod's Temple, this book will prove to be fascinating. The older eye witness accounts are particularly striking, making it very clear the current view of the location of the Temple Mount is totally wrong.
I don't expect many will change their view as it's so ingrained, particularly the Jewish obsession with the "Western Wall". For Jewish people in the USA in particular, who are willing to read this book with an open mind, be prepared for some challenging evidences for the true location south of the "Haram al Sharif"
On a practical level this book has too many large footnotes, nevertheless the amount of information is astonishing, and very much a credit to the late Dr Ernest L Martin.

The gist of this book is, The Temple (yes that temple) did not stand on "The Temple Mount;" as a matter of fact "The Temple Mount" is the remains of a Roman fort; The Temple was at the other end of the fort closer to where the Al Aqsa mosque now stands. The Dome of the Rock? When the Romans built the fort they framed in with huge stones and then back filled the spaces. The rock was an outcropping that remained above grade after construction of the fort. Author contends The Temple was built upon/over the Ghion spring, water being needed big time for Temple needs. This is located by the Al Aqsa mosque, NOT ON "THE TEMPLE MOUNT." This would certainly explain why, in spite of what Jesus (that is the Son of God) said in regards to The Temple, "......no stone shall stand upon another." stones appear to be standing upon each other, the stones that are left are from the fort; The Temple was utterly destroyed, taken down to bedrock, the area later used as a dump. This was all done (as well as the destruction of the Jewish quarter of Jerusalem) in 70 AD. As the author explains the Roman method of recovering hidden wealth in homes/building/towns was simple and brutal, burn everything, the metals melt and run to the low spots, remove debris (slaves did that, the conquered) down to bedrock and recover precious metals! Then kill/sell into slavery the conquered. Author also reconstructs the geography of ancient Jerusalem and then explains biblical passages within the geographical context, this is very well done. Author also contends he knows the location of David's tomb, it's near the former site of The Temple. There's much more of course but this is the gist of it all. See, askelm dot com for authors web page and discussion of his theories.

Amazing! Author builds strong case for the Temple location and why other locations are incorrect. I wish the book had some maps so I could visualize each of the locations he is talking about.

I have been a member of the Temple Institute for some 25 years and have noted increasing interest in the Temple Mount - long thought to be the location of Solomon's Temple. Martin is an excellent researcher and presents an almost electrifying Discovery scenario of the present day Temple Mount and Wailing Wall starting with eye witness accounts going back almost two millennium. Although he tends to repeat himself as he builds one chapter upon another, you won't put the book down for fear you'll miss something in this ever changing drama that Jews and Christians are watching daily. The results will change history, geography, and even beliefs. This is not the last word!

This book describes 2 different cities that existed next to each other; one was/is the Roman military city called Fort Antonia/Haram esh-Sharif located just north and east of the city of the Jews: the true Temple Mount, and Jerusalem. The book goes through the 'total' destruction caused by the Roman - Jewish wars [66 A.D. to 73 A.D.], that caused complete and total removal of the foundation stones of the entire Temple Mount which was south of the current Haram esh-Sharif with its Dome of the Rock. The Romans wanted to find as much gold as possible that the Jews had kept in the Temple, or in passages, caves under it.
