Sakhara Mosque was built in the first lunar century and during the period of Abdul Malik bin Marwan, and it has been rebuilt in different periods after that.

The Dome of the Rock, along with the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, the Amr al-Aas Mosque in Cairo, and the Qirawan Mosque in Tunisia, is one of the most important buildings built in the first lunar century and is respected among Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

The mountain on which the Dome of the Rock was built was the Qiblah of the Muslims until the second year of Hijri. According to Muslims, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) ascended to the sky from this rock on the night of Ascension. Jews believe that the earth was spread out from this rock and Adam's body was created from its soil, and it is the place where Prophet Ibrahim took his son to sacrifice after he was commanded by God to slaughter.
