If you are in Jerusalem then you must see the Temple Mount. It is an amazing sight of major cultural inspiration which will give you more insight into the Middle East religions. Worth seeing.

A key place for many religions and certainly some impressive sights. Entry is tedious though, limited by entrance and time. Due to many tourists and stressed locals, we left soon. Potential to be truly impressive, but so far mostly worth visiting for its history.

Its one of the most important religious sites in the world. For Judaism its a place where: God gathered the dust used to create the first human - Adam, Abraham was about to kill his son - Isaac & both Jewish temples stood. For Christianity as per the New Testament it remains the site of several events in the life... More

Be respectful. But go. The history of this place is beyond measure. Make sure you look beyond the visible, and remember what was here.

Interesting because of historical context but, honestly, I was not at all impressed. I though that the girls in our group were treated somewhat disrespectfully (they were dressed appropriately) by the men who wanted them to rent their rather dirty shawls. The girls all wore long pants, full shirts with long sleeves and head scarves. They needed no shawls -... More

Despite a wait to pass through Israeli security on the long covered ramp that leads up to the "mount" of the Temple, it was well worth it. Once on top, you are able to see the Al Aksa Mosque, the various gates that once led into the Second Temple area, and the glorious golden dome of the Dome of the... More

Its been 3 years on and I still miss the place. If you get to visit the this place during Azan (muslim call to prayer) is spectacular added bonus. Should be number one on your Jerusalem must do list.

The Temple Mount is very large. The Dome of the Rock sits on it. The Dome could use some cleaning outside. Of course, if not muslim, you cannot enter the dome. Make sure you are not wearing shorts because you will be charged quite a bit to "borrow" a skirt like item to cover up. Also make sure you know... More

Great place to contemplate the significance of the temple both in Judaism and in the life of Christ. Stunning views of the Dome of the Rock and of the city below. Be sure to dress appropriately for the site, as a very strict dress code is enforced.

If another war starts, it will probably be over this site ; so visit to see what it is all about. The platform is quite peaceful (if you ignore the heavily armed Israeli police) and quiet. The mosque is beautiful from the outside and Muslims tell me that it is just as nice inside. It is the 3rd most important... More
