This is a major landmark that can be seen all over the Old City of Jerusalem. Apparently this is where the Temple was meant to be have been but as Jesus predicted it was destroyed in AD 70

One way in for non-muslims. Open during specific hours which can change during the last part of Ramadan. This is a massive area which sits over the controversial site of Jewish and Muslim history. The large golden dome is actually a meeting hall with the...More
