Dome of the Rock

Islamic tradition says that the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven from the spot marked by the Dome of the Rock.

Tradition speaks of the Prophet being taken from Mecca to Jerusalem on a winged horse and then being lifted to heaven where he was shown by God when and how to pray, one of the five pillars of Islam.
