Dome of the Rock

The Dome of the Rock is the most important islamic site in Jerusalem. It is not a mosque, as many people think, but rather a Muslim shrine. Much like Mecca, the structure is built over a sacred stone. This stone is believed to be the place from which the Prophet Muhammad ascended into heaven. The Dome of the Rock is the oldest Islamic monument that stands today.
