Pictured is one of the holiest sites in Jerusalem, The Noble Sanctuary. The walls holding in all of the sanctuary’s contents are clearly visible in this photo. It is believed by many that these grounds were once the location of the Temple of Solomon. Many important religious buildings and structures stand within these walls, all perfect displays of Islamic architecture and Ottoman style design.
