الحرم القدسي الشريف

(Haram al-Sharif, the Noble Sanctuary)

The Dome of the Rock (with the golden dome) was completed in 692 CE. The Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque (with the silver dome) on the Temple Mount comprise the third holiest site in Islam. It is believed that this is the location of Muhammad's journey to Jerusalem and his ascent to heaven.
