  Cultural Attractions

Al Aqsa Mosque or 'The Farthest Mosque' is the third holiest site in Islam, following the Ka'ba in Mecca and Al Masjid an Nabawi in Medina. The atrium of the mosque has the 'Dome of the Rock' which is the site of the Temple Mount, one of the holiest sites in Judaism as well. The Temple Mount is referred to as Haram al-Sharif, the Noble Sanctuary. Built mostly in early Islamic style by the Umayyads, it has a golden dome, 4 stone minarets and intricately stained glass windows. The Romanesque central bays of the facade were built by the Knights Templar.
