Bracketing the massive platform that holds the Dome of the Rock are four sets of five arches... one on each side. I am not certain but they seem to be the remains of a procession of them that used to surround the plaza. The reason I say that are these arches. Unlike others they aren't at the top of stairs but rather crown a stretch of sheer wall looking out toward east Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives.
