Got it !

The red square was the Temple Mount enclosure, the blue square was the Roman fortress located at the northwest corner of the Temple Mount. Fort Antonia was built on top of the rock, today's dome of the rock.

No, the entire old temple zone for Solomon's and Herod's temple is gone these days. Just some roads and buildings over the area these days.

It is old wives tale to claim it was where you keep trying to tell everyone that it was.

There is no 450 ft tall wall where you point and that is required to locate the original area for the temple, which was on the Ophir area and was about 600 ft south of the area you keep claiming.

Why do you think there was a 137 meters (450 feet) tall wall anywhere in Jerusalem ?

Herod's temple was on the lower platform. The Roman fortress Antonia (tower Antonia) was on the upper platform, where the Dome of the Rock (fortress cistern) is today.
