We were in the Holy Land for a tour of the religious sites and got the opportunity to see the Temple Mount and the surrounding grounds. The views are spectacular! The history of this area is so important to three faiths and can't be missed.

This is a significant place for Muslims and it’s important for tourist to respect it as such. Limited time to see though what we saw was worth it.

Temple Mount only open to non-muslims 4 hours a day, only a few days of the week. Arrive early, by 7am. Security check. Fascinating place to see.

This is a holy spot for Muslims, Christians and Jews. Non-Muslims must enter through the Mughrabi Gate, located near the Western Wall plaza. You must pass thru security. The Dome of The Rock & the Al-Aqsa Mosque are here. Armed guards patrol.
