The Temple Mount, in Jerusalem, Israel, is home to the Dome of the Rock and the Wailing Wall. The Dome of the Rock (the gold-domed structure above) is a mosque, a place of worship for Muslims. The Wailing Wall, visible in the courtyard directly below the Dome of the Rock, is a sacred place for Jews. Although separated by less than a kilometer (under 0.6 miles), the religious boundaries between the two holy places is immense.
