Ummayad Mosaic Painting Inside Dome Of The Rock

Ummayad Mosaic Painting Inside Dome Of The Rock

The Dome of the Rock, constructed by Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan in Jerusalem in 691 AD, stands as the oldest Islamic architectural monument in the world. Its mosaic decorations, spanning an impressive area of 1,200 square meters, have preserved its status as an unparalleled masterpiece throughout history. These mosaics not only showcase the Dome of the Rock's significance in Jerusalem but also highlight its rich artistic heritage. The mosaic decorations draw inspiration from Byzantine and Sasanian/Iranian art, blending various artistic influences into a harmonious display. Amongst the intricate patterns and designs, Arabic Kufic writings from the Holy Qur'an can be found. While the mosaics are a testament to the grandeur of the Dome of the Rock, their location in the upper areas of the inner surfaces makes it challenging for the general public to fully appreciate their beauty.
