The Holy Sepulchre, Al-Aqsa, The Dome on the Rock in 360º View

The Temple Mount

I saw this on Todd Bolen’s Bible Places Blog, which was posted over a year ago, but I thought would be great to repost, especially for all those who never got to go into Al Aqsa or The Dome of the Rock. If you scroll through the 360º photos of Al Aqsa you will eventually come upon the floors under the main mosque floor. The main floor of Al Aqsa lies on top of the Temple Mount and access can be gained through the Mughrabi Bridge (pictured on the left). The floor under this, if I am correct, are the Herodian tunnels that allowed access to the Temple via the southern gates. If you look at some of the columns it appears that they are Herodian stones (i.e. flat faced limestones with embossed edges), as can still be seen on the lowest parts of the western wall, as well as stones that seem to date to the Crusader period. Enjoy. The resolution and lighting on these images is amazing.
