    There is no archialogical proof to show that Solomon's temple stood beneath Harem-e-Sharif Compound - the Western Wall itself is not of the era of what Solomon's Temple would have been but a 4th century Arab style built wall. Also, the shape of the site itself is the wrong shape as according to Jewish accounts the Temple ran N to S whereas Haram-e-Sharif does not. Had a significant Temple or Church been in that spot Muslims would have done what they have always done and just erected minerets for the "call to prayer", maintained the structure carefully. For instance The Church of The Nativity in Beit Lahm. Even shrines maintained lovingly to Prophets holy to both Jews and Muslims which are in the West Bank, especially in Hebron for instance that have now been taken over by Jews, simply would not have been there had it not been for the care of Muslims over the years - remember it has always been located in a Mosque.
