The Temple Mount is a vast rectangle in the south-eastern part of the old city. Traditionally it is the site of Solomon's Temple and became the site of a Islamic shrine in AD 691. It is now the third most important Islamic santuary and non-Muslims are not allowed inside.

The Dome of Chain is a small dome in the center of the Temple Mount which in one theory is the center of the world.
