This Abu Dhabi Mosque Looks Just Like Jerusalem’s Dome Of The Rock


A Dubai photographer stumbled on a mosque in Abu Dhabi that looks just like Jerusalem’s Dome of the Rock, within the Al-Aqsa Compound.

The Bani Hashim mosque is located in RabdanAl Maqta’, Abu Dhabi. It features a Gold Dome and a blue and white facade which is strikingly similar to the Dome of the Rock which is located in Jerusalem’s Old City, an Islamic shrine located on the Temple Mount.
