The Temple Mount  bears significant history of both Judaism, Christianity and Islam, though  today is presents only Muslim buildings and architecture.

The most significant monuments are the Dome of the Rock  and the Al Aqsa Mosque , both built in the Ummayad period.

The other Muslim structures  in the plaza range from Ummayad period to modern times, and some contain recyceled architectural elements from Jewish  and Crusaders times.
