Quite an experience!...stepping on the Temple Mount of the Bible! *The entrance is a small gate beside the entrance to the Western Wall. *There's a strict time schedule in entering *What's important is what happened in this place according to the Bible!!!

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.
