Dome of the Rock-1

Dome of the Rock Solomon’s sealThe six-pointed stars appear in the most important sites of the monotheistic religions, like the Holy Arks in Jewish Synagogues, facades and stained glasses of Christian Cathedrals (even in a mosaic floor of the Vatican library). Here they appear on the exterior of the Muslim Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount, in Jerusalem, running above all, and alongside some, of the arches (on a green background).
