As we mourn over the destruction of the holy Beis HaMikdash, the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, and more importantly over the exile of the Shechina, the Divine Presence, here is a massive photo pictorial of Har HaBayit - the Temple Mount, as it exists today.
This photo set is from a tour I did several years ago, attending to only enter those areas clearly permitted by all authorities (who allow entry at all).

1 - Stones from the 2nd Beis HaMikdash unearthed by the moslems during their illegal creation of a 5th mosque on the Temple Mount some 10 years ago in the Solomons Stables area.
2 - The Dome of the Tablets (or Dome of the Spirits?), theorized by some to be the proper location of the Kodesh HaKedoshim of the Beis HaMikdash (the Holy of Holies when the Holy Temple stood, the most holy spot on Earth) rather than under the golden dome - dome of the rock.
May Moshiach come today and the Temple be speedily rebuilt!
