Dome of the Rock

Jerusalem Must See Dome of the Rock

You probably think it's a mosque, but it's not. It is actually an Islamic shrine. The dome is the visual symbol of Jerusalem and made of real gold (!). The interior and exterior of the structure are decorated with beautiful marble, mosaics, and metal plaques. The wide raised platform surrounding the dome is open and a bit dull to be honest, but the Dome of the Chain adjacent east is very lively with mothers chatting away.
