Dome of the Rock

Dome of the Rock

The Dome of the Rock was built by Abd al-Malik in 691 CE. For Jews, it marks the spot of the First and Second Temples and the place where Abraham intended to sacrifice his only son Isaac on Mount Moriah. For Muslims, the Dome marks the attempted sacrifice of Ishmael by Abraham, as well as the place of ascension for Muhammad as he climbed towards the heavens during his infamous Night Journey or Mirage.
