Al Kas Ablution Fountain in Jerusalem
Al Kas Ablution Fountain in Jerusalem

In this panoramic view captured with a fisheye lens, the historical and sacred site between the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque in the old city of Jerusalem unfolds in all its grandeur. The focal point of the scene is the prominent Al Kas "The Cup" Ablution Fountain, situated in front of the Al Aqsa Mosque. The expansive view allows for a comprehensive understanding of the layout and significance of this central space. The fisheye lens imparts a dynamic curvature to the image, enhancing the sense of immersion in the surroundings. In the middle foreground, the main ablution fountain, known as Al-Kas, takes center stage. This significant fountain serves a crucial purpose in the religious rituals of worshipers who perform wudu—a ritual washing of the hands, arms, legs, feet, and face before entering the mosque. The fountain's historical legacy dates back to 709 when it was initially built by the Umayyads. Later, in 1327–28, Governor Tankiz enlarged it to accommodate a growing number of worshippers. The architectural details of the ablution fountain, surrounded by the ancient stones and structures of the old city, become pronounced in the fisheye perspective. The intricate patterns and textures of the fountain, combined with the vibrant colors of the surroundings, create a visually captivating and spiritually charged scene. The expansive view also captures the broader context of the holy site, with the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque standing majestically in the background. The historical connection to Solomon's Pools near Bethlehem, the original water source for the fountain, adds a layer of significance to the scene.
