The Kaaba in Al-Masjid al-Ḥarām (The Sacred Mosque), built by the Prophet Abraham as a place to worship God

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaaba

"The Kaaba (Arabic: الكعبة al-Kaʿbah, IPA: [ˈkɑʕbɐ]: "Cube")[1] is a cube-shaped building in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, and is the most sacred site in Islam.[2] The building predates Islam, and, according to Islamic tradition, the first building at the site was built by Abraham. The building has a mosque built around it, the Masjid al-Haram. All Muslims around the world face the Kaaba during prayers, no matter where they are."
