Dome Of The Rock, Jerusalem, Israel, History & Historical Travel & Tours Pictures, Photos, & Information.
Dome Of The Rock, Jerusalem, Israel.

Defining the skyline of Jerusalem, is the beautiful shrine of the Dome of the Rock. It was built on a platform over the rock of Mount Moriah more than 1,300 years ago by the Muslim Umayyad Caliph Abdul Malek bin Marwan. It was completed in 691 A.D. , in the Al-Aqsa Mosque commemorating the Prophet Mohammad's journey to the Seven Heavens.

There are eight stairways with arcades leading to the raked platform of the Dome of the Rock. There is even a sun dial on top of the center top archway.

The shrine holds about 1,500 people. The men and women pray in different sections according to Muslim tradition. On Friday at Noon for prayer (Al-Asr), the Dome of the Rock is open for women only.

The Rock is about 12 x 15 meters in size, and is is about 2 meters high above the Al-Aqsa Mosque's level ground. There is a cave below the rock known as the "Cave Of Souls."

The inner wooden dome is decorated with stucco and it was restored by Salahuddin Al-Ayyoubi in 1187 A.D. after defeating the Crusaders. During the Crusader period, the Dome of the Rock was renamed Templum Domini.

Some Biblical scholars and theologians think that the Dome of the Rock is not sitting on the Temples of God which were built by King Solomon. The bible scholars think that the original site of the temple was to the South near Fort Antonia.

Sometimes the Dome of the Rock is referred to as the "Mosque of Omar," actually the Dome of the Rock is not the "Mosque of Omar." It was built a little further away.

The easy way to get to Jerusalem, is to fly into the Ben Gurion International Airport. The airport is close to Jerusalem, which is about 5 miles away.

The Ben Gurion International Airport, (IATA: TLV, ICAO: LLBG), also referred to by its Hebrew acronym Natbag, is the largest and busiest international airport in Israel. It was named the best airport in the Middle East by the ACI organisation.[ The airport is located near the city of Lod, 15 km (9 mi) southeast of Tel Aviv. It is operated by the Israel Airports Authority, a government-owned corporation that manages all public airports and border crossings in the State of Israel. The Ben Gurion International Airport is considered one of the world's most secure airports, with a security force that includes both police officers and IDF soldiers.

There are several hotels in or near Jerusalem.

There are several Guided Tour Agencies offering standard city, and historical tours of Jerusalem, Israel and the surrounding areas.

After arranging your flight we would suggest getting your hotel and then letting them arrange tours of the area for you. If you call the hotels Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

I do this all the time. It is safe and it works!!! I have never experienced a problem doing it this way!
