Underneath the Dome of the Rock

The main picture above shows the stairways leading down to the small cave underneath the Dome of the Rock. The picture inset shows an internal view.

  • This cave has been called ‘The Well of Souls’ (Arabic: Bir el-Arweh) as some believe this is where the souls of the dead gather to wait for the event of Judgement Day. However, this is a myth as is the notion that the rock above it is floating without any support.
