Especially the Mizbeach, which had to be demolished and reconstructed anew.
The old stones of the Mizbeach weren’t disposed of, they were stored in the Lishkas haChosamos – Bureau of Stamps. This room was situated in the Lishkas Beis haMokeid, which was on the northern side of the Azarah.
One of the reasons Chanukah was set to be 8 days, rather than 7 days, like the Chanukah of the Mishkan and in the First Beis HaMikdash, was because it took 8 days to renovate the Beis Hamikdash.
