A hill in the eastern part of Old Jerusalem is of special significance to the world's three major religions. It was reputedly the site of the first and second Jewish Temple, and since the 7th century has contained two Muslim shrines.

The Temple Mount was another place I enjoyed visiting and it was a very good learning experience for me.

While I recommend all see this site, it is with a few caveats/recommendations. First, go early to avoid crowds. Second be aware that non-Muslims are not allowed in the Temple Mount/Haram esh-Sharif, so as a Christian, I was only able to walk around the exterior...More

My wife and I came here on a Wednesday afternoon and were only able to get a glance of the mosque before being denied entry due to us not being Muslims.

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.

Relevant to all three Abrahamic religions. Non-Muslims can’t enter the Mosque. But Worth the visit to reflect on the many events which occurred here over time. Lines can be long, go early!

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.
