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.

A holy place for both the Christian and Muslim communities. Do respect this place by ensuring that you are modestly dressed.

I'm glad we could go up on the Temple Mount, as it's not always possible. We saw a small group of Jewish settlers escorted across the Temple Mount. They want to tear down the mosques and build a Jewish Temple. They were greeted with jeers,...More

Since our beliefs are broad, this site is holy to three faiths for us. The Islamic representatives really do a disservice by not allowing access to the Dome of the Rock, Mosque, and the museum. I visited all three in the 1980s. We toured with...More

One of most important sites for all three monotheistic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The only drawback is that the High Islamic Council operating the Temple Mount does not permitted one to bring educational materials, maps, or any bibles whatsoever. Further more, there is no...More

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.
