This structure, on the eastern wall of Masjid al-Aqsa, is where the famous Islamic scholar Imam al-Ghazali stayed in Jerusalem. In a room underneath the dome is where he wrote his major work Ihya’ Ulum al-Din or Ihya’u Ulumiddin (The Revival of Religious Sciences).
- The whole structure is also known as Bab al-Rahmah, meaning the Gate of Mercy. It is the other side of the Golden Gate. It was closed for many years but has recently been opened and renovated.
