These Are the Most Beautiful Mosques in the World
DOME OF THE ROCK (JERUSALEM)
Jerusalem’s Dome of the Rock was built in the late seventh century and is considered one of the most important mosques in the world and the third holiest site in Islam.
The structure was built on the platform known as the Noble Sanctuary or Temple Mount, which is considered to be the spot where the Prophet Muhammad began his night journey to heaven. Elaborate mosaics and marblework decorate the interior and exterior and a 780-foot-long Kufic inscription encircles the interior of the dome.
