We didn't go inside ....it was a nice building but I am sorry it is in the spot it is in.....the temple mount should ONLY be for the Temple of the one and only God. He'll restore his temple one day.

Never carry a Bible when touring this site. Be prepared for some rudeness but generally safe. May or may not be able to enter the dome.

I gather from reading other reviews that there is an entrance where non Muslims are permitted to enter. Our tour didn't go by that entrance and we were already covering a lot of ground so I didn't think to ask for an alternative entrance. However,...More
