A secured entrance to the Temple Mount

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... read more

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

This can only be viewed from a distance unless you are Muslim. it is impressive how the whole temple area is constructed and the location of the temple.

The temple mount was quite pretty and we got there early so there weren't many people. Make sure to check the open hours as it is limited and there is only one entrance for non-Muslims which is best found from the Western wall area. If you are with your loved one you can't touch while taking photos, which we found... More

I wore long pants, which was good, but failed to imagine that my rather modest blouse would still be considered inappropriate once inside security. Fortunately, a man in our group handed me his jacket, which I tied around my shoulders in order to pass inspection by the young guard. Other women were not so lucky and were forced to buy... More

I visited the Temple Mount in Jerusalem recently with a friend, a Muslim lady wearing a shawl (to cover the hair) and a skirt that showed the lower legs. She was instructed to 'hire' a full length skirt (at a cost of 25 shekels) in order to visit the site. I also saw men wearing these same skirts. To visit... More
