I visited the Temple Mount with a tour group of Israel. We were required to go through security to visit the Temple Mount (security was also required to enter the Western Wall). We spent several hours walking around the grounds and admiring the building. I would recommend seeing it. Non-Muslims are not allowed inside the building, and we were required... More

Huge space, cannot believe how big this place was. Herod built a huge 2nd temple. What remains does make you think about how it was built. But this space is still and peaceful. A must visit

The history of the Mount alone makes this a must-see. The Dome of the Rock is one of the best preserved Islamic shrines in the world although non-Muslims are currently not allowed to visit inside. The Mount itself is controlled by the Jordanian Waqf who do not allow non-Muslim prayer. Israeli police enforce this in order to keep the peace.... More

It is a beautiful mosque on top of a large complex/pavilion. Wide space and it would be a nice place to sit around and do some reflection, if you are allowed to. It is a very guarded and somehow tensed place. We went up with our guide who was giving us a history of the place, starting with how we... More

Even if you are not a muslim, this building deserves all the attention as a tourist. Unfortunately, being a place of such importance in the Muslim religion, as a tourist of another religion can not enter inside. It remains only to admire exterior beauty and to take photos from everywhere. Attention on visiting hours, because you can not enter only... More

The Haram Al Sharif / Temple Mount is one of the most beautiful landmarks in Jerusalem, do not miss it! Coming from the bustling Old City, you will be surprised at how quiet, green and peaceful this gigantic garden is. You will also be amazed at how beautiful the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, which stand... More

This mosque is simply stunning. The gold plated dome stands out in the city. The tiles were done by an Armenian who escaped during the Armenian holocaust. If you are not a Muslim you can enter via the nonmuslim gate and go up on top of the mount, but not into the mosque.

The Temple Mount, most holy of places to Jews, is a place where only Muslims are allowed to pray. I am not joking, if they see anyone not dressed in Muslim garb moving their lips, even silently, they attack you and call the police to remove you from the site. It is not worth visiting under these conditions.

In the winter the times to non muslins is open just 7:30 - 10:30 am and 12:30 - 13:30 pm. Arrive early and do not forget your passport. The only entrance is when you leave the western wall There is a wooden walkway. Stay tuned.
