I am Muslim (conservatively and appropriately dressed for mosque with headscarf and all), but I was not welcome here. Make sure you have your passport, and do not take any non-Islamic religious items when you go through security - only Islamic items are allowed. We visited during winter and there were no crowds. We got to the entrance around 7:45am... More

We had about an hour on the temple mount. Our guide got us to the line half an hour early and there was a 15 minute delay before they let non Muslim tourists go onto the Mount. Our time there was special from a spiritual perspective although we could not go into the sites themselves.

The Dome of the Rock is the image many have from Jerusalem, seeing it from close make you feel like you really visited the city.

It was a dream come true. I've always dreamed to go to the Temple Mount and I made it. Be aware of the visiting hours for tourists and do not hire any tour guide in the site. Women should dress respectfully.

The ruling authorities prohibit a lot of tourists to go up onto the Temple mount. A very significant place for Jews , belivers in Yeshua and also for the Muslims. Sadly they are not friendly and can be very hostile. But do try to go up. Non Muslims have to enter from the Western Wall side up the ramp. Usually... More

This site is under Muslim control- so the visiting hours a days are very limited. If you are not Muslim you will be observed-do not take a bible or prayer book. Respectfully view the site, and do not sit in one area too long. A guide will give you a lot of history

If you find the opportunity to visit the Temple Mount, please do. It is worth it to stand there and just listen. You can feel the tensions between everyone there. You can hear the prayers from the Western Wall. Be mindful of the rules. Please men, do not touch a woman (we were scolded when my husband touched my back... More

Sadly, I have to say that I was disappointed by the Temple Mount, which is a shame. The visiting hours are very restrictive for non-Muslims, who are also not allowed inside the Dome of the Rock. Instead, access is permitted to the mount itself, which is partly a large plaza, a few buildings, the Dome, and heaps of garbage. I... More
