I don't even know where to begin with this review-Amazing! The two obvious buildings are the Dome of the Rock and the El-Aqsa Mosque. If you are permitted entrance, don't miss either. Both have amazing architecture, art, and history. In the mosque, don't miss noticing...More

Temple Mount is known to Muslims as Haram esh-Sharif, a rock-topped hill located in Old City Jerusalem. Before Islam existed, it was the site of Solomon’s Temple, identified in the Hebrew Bible as The First Temple (בֵּית־הַמִּקְדָּשׁ‬: or HaMikdash). That temple was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar...More

As a Christian you can not go into the mosques. Nevertheless, the site is full of history and very much worth seeing. But there is a heaviness over the area, with policemen and guards, both Jewish and Muslim, everywhere. The Muslim attitude here is very...More

Because we were not Muslims, the experience of going to the Temple Mount remained only a view from the unkempt esplanade. It was a very long, uncomfortable wait on the ugly pedestrian bridge from Bab/Sha’ar al-Mughariba (“Mughrabi” ramp). The process of entering from the Moor...More

April is summer time. Temple Mount for non-Muslims is open from 7am to 11am and then from 12.30 to 1.30. Suggest that you visit in the morning at 7am.
