This is definitely a must. We were there on a sunday morning at 7:40 am and were allowed to enter after a short waiting time. We had a baby stroller with us which was not a problem. There are only a couple of staires. Police was helpful and the atmosphäre peaceful.

This is regularly closed due in part I believe because the Muslims dont want you there and in part because of the tension in the area. We tried to visit on one occasion but the length of the queue meant we wouldn't get in before closing time, check the opening hours and get here early! We came back at 7am... More

The Temple Mount is the hallowed part of the historic Old City, it is set apart on the "Eastern End". It encloses the Moslem shrines of the gold covered Dome of the Rock and silver domed mosque. We are told the Dome of the Rock was built in the late 7th century, it is impressive and a sacred site to... More

This was an amazing place to experience--so much history. There are many groups of women and others of men, in circles for discussion and/or prayer. A fellow traveler asked a group of Muslim women for permission to take a photo, and they were friendly and accommodating. The line was lengthy, but moved fairly quickly. It took around 45 min to...
