Photographer's Note

The Dome of the Rock, as I'm sure many people are aware of, is an Islamic shrine and a major landmark located on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

It is said that the beautiful golden dome was created by surplus funds consisting of 100,000 gold dinar coins, which were melted down and cast on the dome's exterior. It was written that at the time of construction the dome had such a strong glitter that no eye could look straight at it.

Whilst some of its glitter may be gone nowadays, it is still a beautiful structure to set your eyes upon.
