Description:

The Dome of the Rock (Qubbat Al Sakhra), is one of the most beautiful shrines in the Islamic World. The structure has been refurbished several times since its completion in 691 AD at the order of the Umayyad Caliph Abd-al Malik. The site marks the spot where the Prophet Mohammed ascended to heaven leaving his footprint on a stone within the Dome, which can still be seen today. The interior of the Dome is lavishly decorated with beautiful mosaics, faience, and marble, much of which was added over the centuries following its completion.
