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.

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

Although Temple Mount can be a bear to get into with its minimal visitation hours and often closing randomly, it's really worth the trip. I went as part of a tour which made access easier. Definitely get in line early as the line gets incredibly...More

I would visit again if I have a chance since it is too beautiful. One should never miss it in the tour program.
