Which temple?  Solomon's, Zerubabbel's or Herod's?

And which stairs?  From the city to the temple proper gates or elsewhere?

We don't delete threads as a general rule.  Plus, someone else may indeed have the same question as you do!

Do you mean in the entire temple both inside and outside, including the courtyard, inside the holy of holies, only on the outside, etc.?  You might want to be more specific....
I got nothing.

Do you mean individual steps or staircases?  ;)

Are you not familiar enough with the Scriptures to recognize that the Temples of Zerubabbel and Herod are also temples of the Jews?

How can we give you the answer if your question wasn't precise?

There's not a single off-topic question or comment so far.  Everyone is seeking precision in the question before they can attempt to answer it.

If you were asking, say, about the Temple of Solomon, then we would check the scriptures.  If you were asking about Herod's Temple (which replaced the Temple of Solomon, after the latter was destroyed with the Babylonian invasion), then we would check the archaeological records to see if that information has been cataloged.
