The Dome of the Rock, a landmark of Jerusalem

Dome of the Rock

In “Journey in the Bible,” which is presented every Sunday, I would like to tell you about a place in Jerusalem that has little to do with Christianity. I also went on a Christian pilgrimage so I could not see it here and see it from a distance. So here are some pictures and information from the books.

The Temple Mount

I did not notice in The Burmese translation of The Temple Mount in Jerusalem that Israel and the Palestinians were at loggerheads. Probably my need. I think the closest is Mount Mori.

“In Jerusalem is the place where the Lord appeared to his father David on Mount Moriah. In the fourth year of Solomon’s reign, Solomon reigned in the place where David had prepared the threshing floor of Aaron the Jebusite. Second month On the second day he began to build the house of the Lord. ” (2 Kings 3: 1-2)

7) As it is. Where Abraham commanded his son Isaac to be sacrificed. This is where David bought the land from Aaron. It was here that King Solomon spent seven years building a temple. The temple is small but has many decorations, including many valuables. Inside was the ark of the covenant, which contained the tablets of the Ten Commandments, which Moses brought from Mount Sinai (Bible name: Sinai). The temple was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE and rebuilt more than 50 years later. Then destroy it forever. Destroy it. It even happened when it was rebuilt. This is the place of the Prophet Muhammad’s night journey to heaven It is also known as a special place. Therefore, it is a place of Muslim interest and one of the holiest places in Islam after Makkah and Madinah. Today, Muslims call this Temple Mount Haram al-Sharif.

The Dome of the Rock (Qubbat Al-Sakhra)

The Dome of the Rock is one of the most notable landmarks in all of Jerusalem. It looks like a sack that encloses with a drawstring. It is said that the temple was originally built on the site of King Solomon. During the Crusades, Temple Mount was used as a base, and The Dome of the Rock was transformed into a Christian church. At that time it was renamed the Temple of the Lord (Templum Domini). The Al-Aksa Mosque near the temple was converted into a royal palace for the Crusaders. When the Muslims recaptured it, it was restored to its original form.

It is also believed that this is the place where the Prophet Muhammad’s night journey to heaven took place. It should be noted, however, that the Koran does not mention Jerusalem. I have never read the Koran before, so if you make a mistake, let me know. The tower-shaped structure next to the temple is said to contain the hair of the Prophet Muhammad’s beard. Inside the temple is a place of worship for the spirits of the dead, known as the Well of the Souls.

The decoration is quite beautiful and in the past, mosaics were created and later replaced with stone. The temple was built between 689 and 691 and was built by two engineers, Yazid Ibn Salam of Jerusalem and Raja Ibn Haywah of Besan.

Al-Aksa Mosque near The Dome of the Rock the Dome of the Chain; The Dome of the Ascension and the Islamic Museum. I want to say that Jerusalem is a place full of three major religions and a great place to learn. The more you know about the historical background, the more interesting it becomes. It is even more interesting to know the current political situation.
