Located in the Old City’s Muslim Quarter, this is the world’s third holiest shrine to Muslims (after the Kaaba in Mecca and the Tomb of the Propher in Medina), which signifies the spot where the Prophet Muhammad is believed to have ascended into Heaven.

Although non-Muslims are not allowed in the mosque itself, Jews are unwelcome even on the surrounding mount to the point that there are Muslim Arab women who yell and spit at groups which are obviously Jewish. My advice is to avoid this location unless you...More

If you are not Muslim, you probably won't be allowed to enter the mosque, but you can admire it's beauty from the outside. This is probably because Muslims pray 5 times a day, so it would be incredibly distracting to have groups of tourists walking...More
