There are some floorplans of the inside of the Beis HaMikdosh, for example in the first edition of the ArtScroll gemara Yoma. However, I am looking for a (sefer) picture that describes the exact location of where the Beis HaMikdosh stood, in relation to where the kotel is now.

See image from Google Maps:

The image shows (yellow drawn area) where the kotel is. In the middle of the picture, it shows the location of where the dome of rock stands. However, are there sources/images/seforim that describe, according to the overview above, where the exact location of the Beis HaMikdosh was, including all locations like, where did the Kodesh HaKodashim stood in relation to the kotel?

On the website of the Orthodox Union, they present a modern-day image of the kotel, and behind it, you can see the location of the אולם - Ulam (entrance).

Is this image, presented by the OU a reliable image?

See also this picture, where you can clearly see the modern day Kotel.

I've read the possible theories. Norma Robertson presented that if you look through the gates (although not everything exists nowadays) leading heading modern-day Derech HaOfel/HaMish'ol HaAharon, you would look directly heading the Kodesh HaKodashim. This is the same location as where Zechariya's tomb is
