Section of the Jerusalem map (1925) showing location of Mount Moriah according to the TaNaKh sources
|Elevation||768 m (2,520 ft) (Mount Moriah)|
|Location||Jerusalem (according to Jewish sources)|
|Parent range||Judean (Mount Moriah)|
Moriah (Hebrew: מוֹרִיָּה, Modern: Moriyya, Tiberian: Môriyyā, "ordained/considered by Hashem"), Arabic: ﻣﺮﻭﻩ, romanized: Marwah) is the name given to a mountainous region by the Book of Genesis, in which context it is the location of the sacrifice of Isaac. Through association with the biblical Mount Moriah (the Temple Mount), Mount Moriah has been interpreted as the name of the specific mountain at which this occurred, although this identification is typically rejected by scholarship.
Muslims believe the historical mount is Marwah in Arabic, as mentioned in the Qur'an, located close to the Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. There has been an historical account of rams' horns preserved in the Kaaba until the year 683, which are believed to be the remains of the sacrifice of Ishmael.
