A golden dome over an important rock

From the February 2003 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Archaeological Sites may seem fixed in time—once important in people's day-to-day lives, but now more like curiosities to be admired and photographed. In Jerusalem, however, ancient sites carry deep religious meaning, and among them one of the most important is the Dome of the Rock—as Muslims call it—a structure located on a 35-acre site in the city.
