A group of ancient stables was discovered in 1996 on the southeastern corner of the Temple Mount. Archeologists have called it "Solomon's Stables," referring to the knightly Order of Solomon's Temple (the Templars). This order of knights, present during the Crusades, reconstructed the halls after it was presented to them by Crusader King Baldwin, and renamed it Solomon's Stables. The stables are located 12 ½ meters below the Temple Mount Courtyard and include twelve rows of pillars and arches.
