Sacred and significant to Jews and Palestinians alike, the Temple Mount has a long and tumultuous history.
For Jews, the Temple Mount is known to be the holiest site in Judaism and the place where King Solomon built the Temple. For Palestinians, the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound is considered the third holiest site in Islam.
From its origins as a symbol of legitimacy for various empires and groups, to its current role as a flashpoint in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Temple Mount continues to represent the complexities and tensions of the region.
