Jerusalem “The Holy”



Traditionally, Mohammad landed in Jerusalem with his divine creature “El Bur’aq”. 

He then ascended to heaven to receive the prayers of Islam, from beneath “Dome of the Rock”, which was erected to immortalize the event and is today the most striking monument in “Al Quds”.

JERUSALEM, sacred in Islam after Mecca and Medina, is the only city in the world that is revered by all three monotheistic religions.





Jerusalem “Al Quds”, meaning “The Holy” – From atop the Mt. of Olives, the traditions and history of Islam are recounted, and the panoramic view with Dome of the Rock dominating the skyline, highlights the importance of the location in Islam. Start at “Haram Al Sharif” and continue through the Moslem Quarter and on to Bethlehem.
