This can be very frustrating to visit - as in the walled city what look like the entrances are actually exits. You need to go to the wooden bridge beside the Western wall to get in - and don't forget your passport.

This is perhaps one of the few landmarks in Jerusalem that doesn't need an address. Dome of the Rock (al-Haram al- Sharif) is a key feature of the Old City that simply can't be missed. The gold coloured dome, donated by the King of Jordan, was originally made of solid gold before being replaced by copper and consequently aluminum, coated... More

It was really nice to see this place up close. I spent an hour and a half taking photos and chatting to a British Muslim who was here doing da'wah, handing out Islamic literature and very small copies of the Qur'an. I think the place opens at 07:30 am, so try and get here not much later than this, as... More

This place is amazing. So much beauty in one place. Yes, if you are a non-Muslim you must dress properly which is covering you're hair and wearing long sleeves and long skirts, but this is basically any Mosque you enter in the world almost always requires this, so expect it. But, you will love the place. It is very amazing... More

The Dome of the Rock is one of the most spectacular buildings and areas you will ever see. If the Israeli authorities are allowing tourists to go up to the area of Haram al-Sharif (most often in the mornings, I think) do no miss it. Since this is Islam's third holiest place in the world, it is only reasonable that... More

I think a lot of people have confused their reviews of the Temple Mount with reviews of the Dome of the Rock. The Temple Mount is the area which surrounds the Dome. It is easy enough to get on to the Mount even if you are not Muslim, provided you are at the gate on the Western Wall Plaza early... More

We went to the Dome of the Rock really early and were really excited! We got there and were told to cover up - which of course is totally fine. We brought some scarves and long skirts to cover up. But then every time we ran into a security guard (or whatever those men were doing there) they were snapping... More
