If you are in Jerusalem and want to see the Temple Mount in all its glory, there no better place. There is also an overlook at the Hebrew University that is very good, but the view from near the Seven Arches Hotel cannot be beaten.

Bring your camera. Not only is this an amazing Biblical site, but it offers beautiful views! You don't need much time here, only enough to take it all in.

I went with a tour group in the morning and it was not crowded. We got great pictures because the sun was behind us. There are vendors around, but that is to be expected. It's a wonderful overview of the Old City and I would advise anyone who is in Jerusalem not to miss this spot. The Garden of Gethsemane is just a quick walk down the "Palm Sunday Road". All in all a really enjoyable experience!

Just a quick visit is all you need. Great place to start your tour of the city. It gives you a nice overview of the city so you can see all the sites from the hill. If you want some cheap tacky tourist gifts and camel rides, you can do that too. Well if you can get through the many tour buses and groups.
