A group of ancient stables was discovered in 1996 on the southeastern corner of the Temple Mount. Archeologists have dubbed the discovery "Solomon's Stables." The name refers to "The Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon," an order of religious knights active in Jerusalem in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Also known as the Templars, the order arrived in Jerusalem during the Crusades, and were given quarter by King Baldwin II in the royal palace which sat on the Temple Mount. Today, the stables' remains are located 12½ meters below the Temple Mount Courtyard, and consist of twelve rows of pillars and arches.
