The correct name is indeed THE TEMPLE MOUNT

How moving, spiritually and emotionally. If you love Israel you must go to The Temple Mount. Yes, it is safe!

The most Holy place for Muslims. It is beautiful to see. Being non-Muslim, we were not allowed to go in, but we were still glad that we went down to see it. Jerusalem is a most holy city and Muslims , Jews and Christians alike.

If you could only visit one place, this would be it. Get there early to avoid the crowds and dress appropriately. This is history first hand. Don't miss it.

We arrived very early and line was already to the main gate. Waited maybe 1 1/2 hours before security. Inside we were followed everywhere. One couple with us told to quit holding hands. No religious symbols allowed. Guide stopped to tell us some history and one of the goons stood behind him I guess to make sure he didn't say... More

Again no charge to get in but worth getting there early to line up. Remember do not take any religious things with you or an iPad . Camera and iPhones are Ok. It really is beautiful, the mosque is something special and definitely worth visiting. Head scarf must be worn and also legs and arms covered..so please respect customs, if... More

Very interesting visit to the Temple Mount, especially because the exterior of the Rock of the Mount is so impressive. The entire area (about the size of a football field) encompasses a mosque, the Rock of the Mount and various small structures, so be prepared to walk Access to this site only occurs twice daily (morning and afternoon), so be...

Non-Muslims can only enter the Temple Mount via the wooden walkway at the Western Wall plaza - which enters the Mount near the Al Aqsa mosque. The security line took about 30 minutes around 10:30 AM on a quiet Wednesday in March, so I would recommend to come earlier than that. Actually as a non-Muslim, one is not allowed to... More

The Temple Mount was my favorite attraction in Jerusalem. The Dome of the Rock is super impressive and one of the holiest buildings for Muslims. The Al-Aqsa mosque is a little less impressive, but still beautiful. Try to go on a sunny day... Photos are mich better with a blue sky :)

We were on a tour with our kid's school, and made a decision to go. VERY glad that we had this experience. Monday, from 12:30-1:30 allow non Muslim visitors (check the schedules in Jerusalem, always, we missed the Hotel Tunnel tour that day because they closed at 2pm) through the gate. We cued up at 11:30 and were the third... More

I have nothing against Muslims, but these guys are extreme. You have to wait for an hour to see it they have very limited and strict visiting hours. You will be searched and God help you if you want to wear your cross or Star of David, it isn't allowed. When they searched me, they jerked all my credit cards... More
