Transcript JERUSALEM. 69 the south wall of the Temple. The direction of the passage, too, is of importance, as there seem some reasons for believing that the passage from the Huldah Gate led directly to the Altar of the Temple. At the south-east angle of -*=g=g===gg==== the Haram esh Sherif a flight of steps gives access to a small mosque, in which is shown the " Cradle, or Couch, of our Lord Jesus." The cradle is an old Roman niche for the reception of a statue, placed on its back and covered by a kind of shrine. A small window on the right- hand side of the staircase looks into the extensive vaults which support the south-eastern portion of the Haram enclosure. These vaults are known to Franks as " Solomon's Stables," and to Moslems as " the Old Mosque." In this south-east corner, according to Captain Warren and Mr. Fergusson, Solomon's Palace was situated and, on the surface above the latter places the group of buildings, churches, monastery, and hospital, which Justinian erected on the Temple mount. Some years ago Dr. Barclay, the American missionary, found a portion of the ground on which Justinian's buildings are supposed to have stood paved with tesserce, but all traces of the pavement have now disappeared. IN THE MOHAMMEDAN CEMETERY, JERUSALEM. On the east side of the Haram esh Sherif is the "Golden Gate," called by Moslems the Gate of Conversion or Penitence," and sometimes the "Gate of the Eternal" (see page 57).
