Transcript 6o PICTURESQUE PALESTINE. The dome of the building is of wood, covered externally with lead, and inter 11 with stucco, richly gilt and painted; its height is about-ninety-six feet. The window. the external wall and clerestory are remarkable for the beauty of their tracery, no 1 than for the brilliancy of their colouring and for the admirable way in which the diffe colours are blended, producing perfect harmony in the whole. To be seen to advantap- they should have the full blaze of a Syrian sun streaming through them. ' One window near the western door is of special beauty. The light is admitted through three mediums First, there is on the outside a thick perforated framework of cement covered with THE CAVE UNDER THE GREAT ROCK ON MOUNT MORIAH. faience; this allows the light to pass to a second window of stone with white glass, an thence to the inner window, which gives the design and colouring. In this inner windov the small pieces of coloured glass are inserted obliquely, and not vertically, so as overhang and meet the eye of the spectator at right angles. Nothing can equal exquisite taste with which the pieces of glass are arranged or the charming brightness the colouring; and the combined effect is certainly not surpassed by that of any win in Europe. Some of the windows bear the name of Suleiman, and the date 935 052° A the same period to which the finest specimens of the porcelain tiles are assigned.
