BELOW JERUSALEM’S TEMPLE MOUNT. Named Solomon’s Stables by the Crusaders, this underground vaulted space is now a new Muslim prayer hall. In 1996 the Islamic Waqf began converting the area into a prayer hall and in 1999 added a new entrance and stairway down to the site, new floor and electric lighting. The Muslim authorities said the new mosque was needed to accommodate additional worshipers during Ramadan and on rainy days.
