Jerusalem, Israel - 24th July 2007

By: alleycat

Today we had quite a tour! First we went to a viewplace on Mt.Scopus to see the panorama of Jerusalem with one of the most famous holy sites - the Dome of the Rock .

The Dome of the Rock is a Muslim shrine built on a sacred stone which is believed to be the spot from which Muhammad ascended for a night-long journey to Heaven in AD 621, and in Judaism the stone is believed to be the place where Abraham fulfilled God's test to see if he would be willing to sacrifice his son Isaac.

We saw also the Church of Mary Magdalene on the Mount of Olives - a Russian Orthodox church built by Tsar Alexander III in 1888.
