Jerusalem’s Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque with the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) of the Ancient Jewish Temple

Close your eyes and get the spiritual feeling of the picture. The picture is wordless and I am speechless, but full of awe. The rock beneath the dome is where Avraham almost sacrificed his son Isaac. The western wall is our wailing wall, where Jews prayed for 2000 years (lots of tears). The wall is the closest structure left from the outer wall of the holy temple sanctuary that was built on the rock (twice) and was destroyed by the Babylonians and the Romans both on the 9th of Av (August). These two powerful civilizations are no more! They were destroyed by the wrath of God.

  1. What an awesome photo. It feels like I am right there, which I was in Nov. 1995 and May 2010. It was a life-changing experience and I’ll be going back as soon as possible.
