View of a pile of discarded wooden beams and debris piled just to the west of the "Golden Gate."  Date of photo: June 2009.

Some have suggested that some of this debris may have come from the remodeling of the el-Aqsa Mosque and that in turn the wood used there may have come from earlier structures—maybe even from Herod's Temple!
