History of the Dome of the Rock
The name "Dome" comes from its gold top and "Rock" comes from the sacred stone it was built over. The dome has survived through many historical ages. The Christians and Muslims believed the shrine to be the biblical Temple of Solomon during the middle ages. Over time the dome has gone through many restorations and still survives as a symbol for both Muslims and Jews.
