The Dome of the Rock Lecture at MIA

The Dome of the Rock rests upon Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem and is one of the most iconic monuments in the world. The golden cupola is a symbol of the Holy Land and revered by Muslims as the place where the Prophet ascended to heaven; it is the third holiest place in Islam.
