Built in 691 CE, The Dome of the Rock is one of the oldest works of Islamic architecture. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this legendary place is considered to be one of Jerusalem’s most recognizable landmarks. A masterpiece of Islamic architecture, the shrine is said to be where Mohammed ascended to heaven. Located at the edge of the Old City in Jerusalem, a walk through the ancient alleyways will lead you to this special monument.
Take note: Visitors may be asked to show their passports, so arrive prepared. While the complex is open for all to see, non-Muslims are not permitted to enter into the Dome of the Rock.
