Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Dome of the Prophet also known as the Dome of Gabriel is a free-standing dome in the northern Temple Mount in Jerusalem that serves as a symbolic monument rather than a religious building. It is a part of the terrace of the Dome of the Rock and is one of three Ottoman-built free-standing domes in the Temple Mount vicinity. Originally, the Dome of the Prophet was built in 1538 by Muhammad Bey, Ottoman Governor of Jerusalem. However, it was restored in 1620 on the orders of Farruk Bey, the succeeding Governor of Jerusalem and completed during the reign of the Ottoman Sultan Suleiman II. The dome today mostly reflects the 1620 restoration. The dome is a commemoration of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Further additions were made to the dome in 1845show more
