Dome of the Rock
The dome of the Rock shrine, with a large golden dome and an octagon structure, was built in 691AD, and named after Khalif Omar. The rock is, according to Muslim tradition, the spot where prophet Mohamed ascended to heaven. According to Jewish tradition, the rock was the center of Holy of Holiest, the center point of God's dwelling and the creation of the world. It is one of the most beautiful and enduring shrines in the World, and remained almost untouched throughout the years.
