4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web
With its shining gilt aluminum and bronze dome, perfect stone masonry, wooden roof, and magnificent decorations, the World Heritage Site of Dome of the Rock (al-Haram al-Sharif) stands on the highest point in Old Jerusalem. Of major importance for all three major religions of the book, the shrine was completed in 691 by a Ummayad caliph and represents one of the oldest examples of Islamic architecture. Built over a sacred stone believed to be Prophet Muhammad's ascension spot into heaven, this Muslim shrine perched on Mount Temple holds prayers five times a day and non-Muslims are not allowed to enter. However, most of its beauty lies on the outside and merits a visit. Make Dome of the Rock (al-Haram al-Sharif) a centerpiece of your Jerusalem vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Jerusalem tourist route planner.
