View looking north with the western hill on the left (west) and the Temple Mount on the right (east).

On the left (west) note the theater and the double conical domes of the Hasmonean Palace.

On the right (east) the four towers of the Antonia Fortress  are visible as is a corner of the Temple  building itself.

Note especially the bridge—located on the right center portion of the image—that connects the western hill to the Temple Mount.  Remnants of one of the arches (Wilson’s Arch) is still in existence.
