Thanks, all of you, for your wonderful comments. As we walked around the beautiful and historic building, I took a number of shots, but then, as we were leaving, to walk in the old city, I looked back and saw this! I'm pleased if you shared somewhat the impression I had when I noticed this view. (It's straight out of the camera--no editing possible while I'm on the road.)

Greetings, Marilyn

Very nice composition and lighting Marilyn. The stairs and frame really lead your eye to the dome - well done.

Best wishes from New Zealand, John

It is an Islamic shrine also known as "Bait-ul-Muqaddas (Noble Sanctuary)", a major landmark located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem. The site's significance stems from the religious beliefs regarding the rock, known as the Foundation Stone, at its heart.
