If you walk inside the Dome of the Rock, there is a inconspicuous staircase close to the centre which takes you down to a small cave known as the Well of Souls (Bir el-Arweh).
It is said that this small cave is the very place where the prophet Muhammad ascended into the heavens to make his infamous night journey.
Some say it’s where the souls of the dead gather until the day of judgement, others say this is where the Ark of the Covenant is hidden, and others still believe this is also the place where Abraham almost sacrificed his son Isaac.
This small cave is a wonder of the world; a mixture of myth and reality. Whether any of these momentous events occurred in this tiny cave, who knows? But regardless, many Muslims gather here to offer prayers in Jerusalem’s very own cave of wonders.
