In front of us is a view of the southern part of the Temple Mount. Below us are the stairs that descend from Mount Zion to the Western Wall plaza. Once in the wadi between Mount Zion and the Temple Mount, Cardo Street of the lower city passed. In Roman times the wadi was called Tarofion - a place where made cheeses. A wall before the Babylonian exile surrounded Mount Zion, on which the upper town was located. The city's topography has not changed, and as before, to reach the Temple Mount, we must descend Mount Zion.
