Musalla Marwan

Just below the paved courtyard in the southeast corner of the Sanctuary lies the vast vaulted subterranean area referred to mistakenly as Solomon's Stables. The actual construction is Umayyad, dating back to the 8th century, its original purpose to level the courtyard above. Musalla Marwan now provides space for part of the overflow from the Al-Aqsa Mosque building of the thousands of worshippers who gather each week in the Noble Sanctuary for the Friday prayer.
