The Place of Trumpeting

One stone found at the southwest corner of the Temple Mount had on it a Hebrew inscription saying, "To the Place of Trumpeting." It is thought that this stood at the pinnacle of the Temple complex where a trumpeter would annouce the times of the morning and evening sacrifices.
