|Dome of the Rock|
An important site for three religions.
Rich District, Jerusalem
The Dome of the Rock is an Islamic mosque and major landmark located in the city of Jerusalem. It was built between 689 and 691 CE atop of the Temple Mount, and the landmark was believed to be built on the farthest mosque that the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, came to during the Night Journey.
- Though the dome appears golden in Assassin's Creed, it was not gilded until 1963. It was covered with black lead during the Third Crusade, had a cross on the top, and was converted into a Christian church until Jerusalem was recaptured by Salāḥ ad-Dīn.
- A view point was positioned on top of the roof, as the top of the dome itself was inaccessible.
- Solomon's Temple could be located beneath the Dome of the Rock, since the temple's entrance was somewhere around a building near to the dome.
- The simulated map of Jerusalem in the second stage of the Animi Training Program featured the dome and its surrounding area.
