العربية: لقطة جويَّة جنوبيَّة للحرم القدسي الشريف، الواقع في بلدة القدس القديمة. يظهرُ في المُقدِّمة المسجد القبلي الذي يُخطئ الكثير من النَّاس ويعتقدون أنَّه المسجد الأقصى، ثالثُ أقدس الأماكن في الإسلام بعد المسجد الحرام والمسجد النبوي، في حين أنَّ هذا المُجمَّع بأكمله هو المسجد الأقصى. تظهرُ في الخلف قبَّة الصخرة وإلى يمينها قبَّة السلسلة، التي شُيِّدت خلال العهد الأُمويّ (حوالي سنة 685 للميلاد) واتُخذت نموذجًا لبناء قبَّة الصخرة (حوالي سنة. 691 للميلاد). يعتبرُ اليهود أنَّ هيكل سُليمان، وهو أقدسُ الأماكن في اليهوديَّة يقعُ أسفل المسجد الأقصى.
English: Southern aerial view of the Temple Mount (Hebrew: הַר הַבַּיִת‎, Har HaBáyit, Arabic: الحرم الشريف‎, al-Ḥaram al-Šarīf), showing, Al-Aqsa Mosque (Hebrew: הַר הַבַּיִת‎, Arabic: المسجد الأقصى المبارك‎) in the Old City of Jerusalem (Hebrew: העיר העתיקה‎, Arabic: البلدة القديمة‎). Annotated in the foreground is Al-Qibli Chapel (Arabic:المصلى القبلي). Al-Aqsa Mosque is considered to be the third holiest site in Islam after Mecca and Medina. Behind are The Dome of the Rock (Hebrew: כיפת הסלע, Arabic: مسجد قبة الصخرة‎) and to the right, The Dome of the Chain (Arabic: قبة السلسلة, Qubbat al-Silsila), constructed during the Umayyad Caliphate (c. 685 AD) and served as a model for the building of the Dome of the Rock (c. 691 AD). The Temple Mount, which is called by Muslims Al-Aqsa Mosque, is considered to be the premier holy site in Judaism as it is the place where the first and second Temples stood.
עברית: מבט מדרום על הר הבית בעיר העתיקה בירושלים. בחזית רואים את מסגד אל-אקצה, שנחשב לשלישי בדרגת הקדושה באיסלם, אחרי מכה ומדינה. מאחור כיפת הסלע ומימין כיפת השלשלת, שנבנתה בתקופת חליפות אומיה ושימשה כמודל לבניית כיפת הסלע. הר הבית, עליו נבנה מסגד אל-אקצה נחשב למקום הקדוש ביותר ביהדות, כיוון שעליו נצבו בית המקדש הראשון והשני.
Français : Le mont du Temple, disputé entre Israël et la Palestine.
