Jerusalem Temple Mount not site of King Solomon's Temple
In recent years, there has been much talk by religious Christians and Jews concerning rebuilding the original King Solomon's Temple. And
there are a number of reports on Youtube (and in books) that claim the actual location of the King Solomon's Temple was in an area far from what people call The Temple Mount. The original Solomon's Temple was located at what is called the City of David in Jerusalem. This means Solomon's Temple could be rebuilt in an area that does not require the Muslim Dome of the Rock mosque to be destroyed for some incorrect - and inflammatory (read: World War-causing) - supposed Jewish requirement. Even the Western Wall, the current holiest sight in Judaism, is commonly known as a stone wall that retains the dirt that fills in and allows the Temple Mount area to be a flat ground area.
I - and many videographers and other tourists - have been inside the Dome of the Rock. There is a hilltop dome inside, where Abraham was ready to sacrifice Isaac. No descriptions of King Solomon's Temple talk of a huge rock outcropping being inside of it, with the rock not appearing in that part of the Old Testament. The Dome of the Rock, on the Temple Mount, appears to have been built on the ruins of a church placed on the Temple Mount which might have originally have been a large Roman fort. The Temple Mount also has no natural water spring near it, a requirement for cleansing at Solomon's Temple.

It makes the point that, with all the conquests and displacements of the Jews in Jerusalem, the original Temple site has been destroyed and the exact location was miscalculated centuries ago. But historical accounts point to a slightly different location, six hundred feet away and on lower ground in the City of David.
