It is a real pity that it is not possible for non Muslims to enter the Dome of the Rock. Last week I experienced that feeling again when I was standing in front of that overwhelmingly beautiful mosque. It is haram, and that's it. So...More

This is the most beautiful mosque I have ever seen. Unfortunately they won't let you in in you are not Muslim. However, you get to see the outdoors and hang out in the beautiful gardens and patio.

The decoration of the mosque from outside is beautiful. Most probably inside is also very nice, the photos what I have seen shows the same decoration as outside. We were really happy that we made the visit.

I am so glad I made the time to visit the Dome on my last day in Jerusalem. It turned out to be a highlight. The grounds are extensive with gardens and smaller shrines and mosques across the site. Lots of Ancient archaeological treasures scattered...More

I took a little gorilla pod (a small tripod for my phone) and it was taken by security at the checkpoint. No problem though, I just picked it up later.
