A hill in the eastern part of Old Jerusalem is of special significance to the world's three major religions. It was reputedly the site of the first and second Jewish Temple, and since the 7th century has contained two Muslim shrines.

Looked forward to going there but better off staying away and looking from a distance. Muslims singling out women and telling them what they can and cannot wear. It is not even their holy site anyway and they have no right to enforce their beliefs...More

This place looks far more impressive from a distance. I was annoyed by some of the restrictions placed on visitors, and surprised by heaps of rubble in some places that looked like construction sites--but weren't. There are places where the site is not at all...More

April is summer time. Temple Mount for non-Muslims is open from 7am to 11am and then from 12.30 to 1.30. Suggest that you visit in the morning at 7am.
