Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem, Palestine
The Dome of the Rock or Qubbat As-Sakhrah in Arabic, It was built between 687 and 691 by the 9th Caliph, Abd al-Malik. It is sometimes called the Mosque of Umar , as 2nd Caliph Umar prayed at the site after the Muslim conquest of Jerusalem in 637. Located in what Muslims call the Noble Sanctuary (Haram al-Sharif, in Arabic, which Jews and Christians call the Temple Mount - it remains one of the best known landmarks of Jerusalem. The rock in the center of the dome is believed by Muslims to be the spot from which Muhammad ascended through the heavens to God accompanied by the angel Gabriel, where he consulted with Moses and was given the (now obligatory) Islamic prayers before returning to earth (see Isra and Mi'raj.) Though the location is not historically certain, a Qur'anic verse says that Muhammad took a night journey on Buraq from the sacred mosque (probably Mecca) to the farthest mosque (al-Masjid al-Aqsa), instantaneously.

After the reconquest of Jerusalem by the Muslims in 1187, the Dome sanctuary was repaired. The Ottoman Caliph Abdul-Hamid II provided the sanctuary with carpets and rugs of the first quality and had the Qur'anic chapter Yasin inscribed on the walls in beautiful handwriting.

The Dome of the Rock is believed to have been built for two other purposes, apart from the religious motive of concretizing the pious sentiments of Muslims regarding the Sacred Rock. The other purpose, sometimes referred to in Arabic history books, is that Abdul-Malik aspired to making Jerusalem a great Muslim religious centre.
