At the end of the 7th Century AD the Muslims rebuilt the former Temple Mount and created one of the most potent religious sites in the world. Its most famous building, the Dome of the Rock, is the earliest surviving Muslim religious structure and one of the glories of Islamic architecture. The second part of this two part edition continues to look at different aspects of the architecture, and the intentions of the builders in establishing this complex.
