Dome of the Rock

Jerusalem, Israel

Pass through the chaos of East Jerusalem’s narrow streets for a glimpse at what is quite possibly the most contested piece of real estate on the planet. Holy to Jews, Christians and Muslims, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City is home to the Dome of the Rock. Built more than 1,300 years ago, the shrine houses the Foundation Stone -- and that’s where things get heated. For Muslims, the stone is where Muhammad ascended to heaven; for Jews, it’s the location of the Temple’s Holy of Holies; and for kids on a lazy summer’s day, it’s just a good place to play soccer.
