Prayer Woman Under Dome Of The Rock Mosque

Prayer Woman Under Dome Of The Rock Mosque

This image shows a Muslim woman standing and praying inside the Cave of the Well of Souls, beneath the Dome of the Rock Mosque in the Old City of Jerusalem. She is positioned in front of Mihrab Suleiman, also known as King Solomon's Mihrab. This mihrab is a significant feature within the cave, being one of the oldest prayer niches in the world, with a history possibly dating back to the 7th or 9th century. The Cave of the Well of Souls, according to a medieval Islamic legend, is a place where the spirits of the dead can be heard awaiting Judgment Day. The name "Well of Souls" is also associated with a depression in the floor of the cave and a hypothetical chamber that may exist beneath it. The cave chamber itself is roughly square, measuring about 6 meters on each side, with a height ranging from approximately 1.5 to 2.5 meters (4 feet 11 inches to 8 feet 2 inches). The soft, warm yellow lighting within the cave adds to its sacred and contemplative atmosphere. The red decorated carpet covering the floor enhances the warmth and reverence of the space. The photograph captures the woman in a moment of deep prayer, emphasizing the spiritual significance of the cave and its features, such as the ornately decorated Mihrab Suleiman. The natural rock ceiling, combined with the historical and religious elements of the cave, highlights the profound and layered history of this sacred site.
