|Considered sacred ground even before Biblical times and bitterly contested in our own day, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is one of the most fascinating and important places on earth. Few places in the world have enjoyed such religious significance. According to Jewish, Christian and Muslim doctrine, it was here that Adam was buried after being expelled from Eden. This is also the site where it is said Abrahamwas asked to sacrifice his son, where Solomon built his Temple, and where Muhammad ascended to heaven.
