E. 55 It was constructed against the southern wall of the Temple Mount directly below the al-Aqsa Mosque. Only the western portal of the Double Gate was in use at this time, the eastern portal being partly outside the new gatehouse and blocked. 56 Schick published a plan showing a gate on the western side of the complex close to the southern wall of the Temple Mount. Through this gate one entered, via a passage running east, a large north–south chamber formed of three groin-vaulted bays. Three arched openings on the east wall of this chamber gave onto the area before the open portal of the Double Gate.

However, as it appears that the church built by the Templars was on the east, it is quite likely that the Templars had constructed on that side a typical monastic complex with church, dormitory, latrines, kitchen, refectory and other elements located around a cloister. 33 This seems to suggest that there was a cloister on either side of the Templum Salomonis. The present square to the west of the al-Aqsa Mosque, which is bounded on its east by the mosque itself, on its west and south by the present Islamic Museum and on the eastern continuation of the south side by the ‘Women’s Mosque’, a Crusader structure, certainly constitutes one of the two cloisters.
