I came here only for beautiful arhitecture of Temple Mount and I disregarded this mosque. It is very big and with nice inside, but compared with other mosques, not worth too much attention.

An amazing mosque, seen so much over the years, the 3rd holiest mosque for all Muslims and an important part of Al-Aqsa complex, been renovated with what ever funds they got to look after this historic icon of Jerusalem history

Despite the chaos and oppression that surrounds it, the walls of the Aqsa mosque bring a sense of tranquility to the hearts that frequent it; It provides the escape that many Palestinians yearn for.

Just realised my initial review for this was accidentally under 'Temple Mount' and all things considered may mean some people dont see it. Despite a long wait (it was the middle of the day so likely busiest time) I really enjoyed the Mosque and compound. The sight of the Dome of the Rock is a beautiful one right across Jerusalem/القدس‎‎... More

Islam's most sacred building also known to be the location of the first and second temple. Entry into the mosque has been banned for non muslims over the last few years. Located on Temple Mount from here you can get a stunning view of the Dome of the Rock. An extremely well guarded monument.

We waited about 40 min for access to the Temple Mount, which is currently accessible only 7.30 -10.00 am and 12.30-1.30 pm. I have no idea how they deal with the 12.30 entrance. We were there at 9.00, waited 40 min and had barely seen a few things before getting chased out. I was aware that the silver Al Aqsa... More

Temple Mount was both very interested and irritating at the same time. There were very few people there but IDF was very much in force there. Also, we were warned very severely to stop laughing and do not show any signs of affection at all by the military people. It was not what I expected but most of Israel was... More

This is what Jerusalem is to Muslims. Don't go to Jerusalem and not visit the Al Aqsa Mosque which is the 3rd Holiest Mosque for Muslims so it means a lot. The Mosque itself is beautiful and people are so kind here. I highly recommend it. Don't forget to dress up modestly :)

I love this mosque, what keeps amazing me is the olive trees in the yards, ancient trees. The dome of the rock mosque is very spiritual.
