Temple Mount which is also known as Haram esh-Sharif is one of the holiest sites in the world. It is where you find some Jerusalem's most important and easily recognisable places such as the Western Wall and Dome of the Rock. Do check online to confirm opening days and hours when planing your visit here. Historically, this was the location... More

Probobly the most prominent of all structures, inside out. Stunning arabesque, convenient space and many visitors of many nationalities and religious affiliations. Very satisfying to see priests and people of the cloth within its premises. Simultaneously it was sad to see the heavily armed police discouraging visitors from entering.

I spent two weeks in Israel and Jordan, and Dome of the Rock was easily the most photographed site of the dozens I visited. It is simply spectacular. Period. Entrance for non-Muslims is limited both in hours and days (not on Fridays or Islamic holidays). The entrance gate is near the Dung Gate on the southern end of the Western... More

Be aware that it is only open on limited days and times. Get there early to beat the line. Security was much easier to get through than we expected. I had read of unpleasant experiences on this site, but ALL of the people we encountered, security or worshipers, were very kind and welcoming. We were asked not to touch each... More

What a place- as you walk in, towards the security checkpoint which is very very strict, you can feel the tension in the air. A peaceful tension-type. I had some metallic thing on me, I cannot remember what it was, I took off my watch, belt, coins, cameras, and everything else I could think off, but security won't let me... More

The Dome on the Rock is the stand out sight of the Old City viewed from any distance - as it always was intended to be. A visit to Temple Mount to see the Dome close up was the stand out sight of our stay in Jerusalem. The mosaic detail on the sides was outstanding. The exterior of the Al-Aqsa... More

Jewish people are not allowed onto the temple mount except for police officers. This is a highly sensitive area. However once on the temple mount, I notice that it is very spacious. The Al Aqsa mosque is opposite the dome of the rock about 100 meter apart. The experience is like non other.

This place is just mesmerising. As a Muslim it obviously has great spiritual significance being the third holiest site in Islam. But what was really amazing was the beauty of simplicity of the area. Great open spaces, surrounded by olive trees and pines- it was like stepping back in time. The Dome of the Rock building itself has stunning artistry... More

We went in a group. This is advisable, although you can travel on your own. There are plenty of places to sit outside while you admire this massive mosque. We were told by our guide that we could not be seen praying while on the mound as it would get us removed by the security. The birthplace of the Virgin... More
