The Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem

Both Jews and Muslims flock to Temple Mount in Jerusalem, which is considered to be one of the holiest sites in the world. This ornate temple dates back to the first century BC.

Deep within the inner sanctum of the temple walls is an even more exclusive site which is off limits and fiercely forbidden to all but a very select group.

Welcome to The Dome of The Rock; this ornately beautiful cobalt blue, gold topped iconic Islamic shrine is a truly sacred site. Only those who practice Islam are allowed beyond the holy walls. According to Islamic scripture this holy site contains the Foundation Stone and was where the prophet Muhammad ascended to Heaven accompanied by the angel Gabriel.
