Al-Aqsa Mosque
 

The Al Aqsa Moque (Masjid Al Aqsa) meaning the farthest mosque is the third holiest site in Sunni Islam. The site on the which the silver Dome sites marks the spot where the Prophet Mohammed was transported from the sacred mosque in Mecca to Al Aqsa during the Night Journey. The Al Aqsa mosque was originally a small prayer house built by the Rashidun Caliph Umar, and was rebuilt and expanded under the Umayyad Caliph Abd-al Malik and was completed by his son Al Walid in 705 AD. After an earthquake in 746, the mosque was completely destroyed and rebuilt by the Abbasid caliph al Mansur in 754, and again rebuilt by his successor Al Mahdi in 780. Another earthquake destroyed most of al-Aqsa in 1033, but two years later the Fatimid caliph Ali As-Zahir built another mosque which has stood to the present-day.
