Haram al Sharif - meaning The Noble Sanctuary - is also known as the Esplanade of the Mosques and is one of the holiest sites of Islam. The Ghawanima minaret, visible in the distance, is a distinctive feature of the Haram al Sharif site and is among the tallest landmarks of the Old City of Jerusalem.
