Light Location of Bais Hamikdash

There is an interesting theory put forth by an Israeli architecht named Tuvia Sagiv ( that the Bais HaMikdash was not located on the spot where the Dome of the Rock is now (which is the usual belief), but rather it was just south of the dome (and 16 meters below the present surface).

This is interesting because this would place it right opposite the Kosel.

Additionally, I came across a website that states the following,
Rabbi Hayim Vital - the student and scribe of the Holy ARI of Safed – wrote in his diary that the place of the Jewish Temple remained unoccupied, and the gentile nations have not built an edifice upon it. Also the Lubawitcher Rabbi has supported this notion about the location of the Temple.
Does anyone know where this statement of R' Hayim Vital appears? And where does the Rebbe agree to this shita?

Re: Location of Bais Hamikdash

Found it.

It's brought in Eimek Hamelech, Intro, perek 9

"V'hinei hee stuma v'sodo hu b'kisvei ha'Arizal v'gam lama hamakom kodesh panui b'lo binyan v'amar al zeh dvarim sh'ein lha'alos bichsav."

Does anyone know if/where the Rebbe makes mention of this issue?
