Indeed, there are chambers underneath the Mount where no one is allowed to go; some ultraorthodox Jews claim that the Ark is down there and will be revealed at the proper time. There are stories that when a tunnel was being excavated next to the Temple Mount, two rabbis went in to see if they could find the Ark. In the course of these investigations, the rabbis noticed water seeping from a stone, removed the stone, and revealed a vaulted chamber.
