Owner description: 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.

We were advised on how to dress.No shorts for men and women must be covered from ankles to neck. We were able to enter through security near the Western Wall. There are many interesting structures on the Temple Mount. We were not able to enter the Dome but appreciated the beautiful tile work on the exterior. We were able to view the sealed Golden Gate from the inside.The security force was highly visible- no weapons noted though. They were dressed in jeans and light blue shirts.

Very beautiful and peaceful place, quite a contrast to busy streets below. In my opinion one of the most beautiful places in Jerusalem. To my information the Temple Mount is opened at 7.40 and 13.40. Note that they can close it at any time (without pre-notice and any explanation). Make sure you are dressed modestly (no bare shoulders and knees) and behave respectfully. Non-muslims are not allowed to enter the buildings but are allowed to walk the park and outside the buildings.

Haram As-Sharif as this large site in the Old City is called is a peaceful refuge with two historic mosques, the more important one for Muslims is actually not the stunning Dome of the Rock but the smaller Al Aqsa one. Non-Muslims have to enter through the wailing wall plaza and go through 2 checkpoints. We weren't allowed into the mosques unfortunately but I understand this is sometimes possible. My muslim friends tell me you can get a good idea of the interior of the Dome of the Rock from the outside, and in the gazebo like building next to it.

we went with my wife on mai to the temple mountain and as non muslims there is only one entry point, near the western wall. They have strict schedules to let non muslims go inside the temple mountain. I remembered we passed around 1:30 pm, and it was crowwwded, so my advice is to start making the line about 1:00 pm. Once inside its just amazing, the dome of the rock is SPECTACULAR,

Even getting information about crossing over to the Temple Mount proved difficult, and the lines and security checks were annoying, but the Dome of the Rock is exquisite (we could only see the outside) and the entire area is a peaceful park. I am so happy we went. Be sure to cover your legs or you will be forced to buy an ugly shawl. There is a tiny souk off the main square which is also interesting. People in the Muslim sector could not have been friendlier or more helpful. In reality, we found that to be true all over Jerusalem.
