One of Jerusalem's top vistas! Maybe most beautiful it is from across the Western Wall, when you see the dome, the wall and mosque as one composition. From nearby, it was though not clean around and no entry possible. Worst, non muslims are allowed only at certain times to get close. Nice, but limited to explore or study from up... More

I was wearing shorts, They tried to sell me a rag to cover my legs for 30 sheckels.. I did not have that many sheckels on me so I had to leave.. I found it upsetting that a religous site was set up as a money making operation.. They should lend you the rags and have you return them as... More

We visited this site during our recent visit. You can no longer go in the building, but it is well worth seeing, as is the full plaza.

I joined a group of Yesihva students for my first ever visit to the Temple Mount. To my pleasant surprise, once we overcame the lengthy security wait, the visit itself went by without a hitch. Visiting this holy place was a remarkable and moving experience, and all the warnings of potential violence was met with absolutely no negative encounters. Disappointingly,... More

You can visit this place 2 times a day. 4 hours before lunch and 1 hour after lunch. It's a beautiful building and very photogenic. Non-muslims cannot go inside. During my 10 days in Jerusalem & Tel Aviv i didn't find a single mosque i could visit.

We waited about 40 min for access to the Temple Mount, which is currently accessible only 7.30 -10.00 am and 12.30-1.30 pm. Come at least an hour earlier. I have no idea how they deal with the 12.30 entrance. We were there at 9.00, waited 40 min and had barely seen the Mount and the Dome from outside and taken... More

Don't understand why some people come here and then complain when some events or acts happened that fall outside their comfort zone. Come on..this side is controversial and conflicts sometimes occur. That's how it is. You go here hoping for the best but prepared for the worse to happen (that is its closed due to some issues) You have to... More

Unless you are Muslim you are currently not allowed to enter the interior of the Dome. The compound that the Dome and mosque sit on is well worth a visit. Make sure you are dressed appropriately. I was very careful to wear long, loose fitting pants and a long sleeve shirt...even though it was crew neck and showed no cleavage... More
