Directly 22 meters northwest of the Dome of Rock on its platform lies the Dome of the Ascension (seen in the center of this picture). Originally a Crusader baptismal, this 6 meter wide dome was rebuilt as a Muslim shrine in 1200. To the left of this structure, one of the protruding entrances to the Dome of the Rock can be seen. To the right of this structure is 1 of the 8 arched entrance ways that connect the octagon shaped platform to the lower level of the temple.
