The Aqsa Mosque

 The Aqsa Mosque is located to the south of the Dome of the Rock on the southern side of the Haram al-Sharif, Jerusalem

The Aqsa Mosque is a rectangular building within the Haram al-Sharif. The Haram site slopes from the north to the south and this tendency is addressed by a platform that traverses it, and upon which the mosque was erected. The layout of the present mosque is the result of reconstructions and modifications that have characterised a number of building stages in different periods, and which are the subject of some debate among historians and researchers.
