Title

View of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem

Description

In this picture, both of the domes of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and the Dome of the Rock are visible. The two have virtually the same dimensions, which scholars have suggested was a conscious decision by the architects of the Islamic structure to suggest that the new religion had supplanted Christianity.
