Temple Mount contains both Dome of the Rock and the El Asqa mosque. Although the Dome of the Rock can be seen from various parts of the city, it would be a pity to miss out visiting such an iconic place.
There is very little here, but it seems like our time in Jerusalem would have been incomplete without coming to this place. For me, it is a place to contemplate questions related to the conflict and the role of sacred sites in our religions.
