Owner description: The silver-domed mosque on the Temple Mount is the third-holiest site in Sunni Islam and is not open to non-Muslims.

Visiting at minute. Won't go into the Islamic historical details (see previous posts). Very peaceful. The Israelis control access to mosque so if you're under < 50 on certain days eg Fri you aren't allowed in. The reason for the tight security & not letting non Muslims into the mosque is because previously Jewish settlers have protested in mosque and attacked Muslims. It's a real shame that people of other faiths aren't allowed to experience the beauty of this place. I pray that everyone can have access to this place soon irrespective of faith.

the entire temple mount is under the supervision of the Islamic authorities. non Muslims can not enter the mosque or teh dome of the Rock and are treated with hostility. No one deserves to be treated this way, keep away.

Al Aqsa mosque known as "Al Haram al-Sharif" - "The Noble Sanctuary, is a very sacred place to Muslims. Visiting it is a wonderful spiritual experience to any Muslim.
I visited in 2007 and in December 2013 to pray.

Non Muslims enjoy the grandeur and the magnificence of the place, and the great historical value and significance.

What an amazing place this is. It was like a dream. I had been longing for many days to perform a Friday prayer in masjid ul aqsa and alhamdulillah I got the opportunity last month. There was a lot of struggle to get in on time as guards were not allowing anyone under 50 years to enter the mosque. Luckily for me as I was a tourist, I managed to sneak in. The feeling was amazing.

Very peaceful. I had trouble getting into the complex. It's not nice that they question visitors as all should be allowed to come worship God. But once in, the atmosphere is really peaceful and spiritual. Go either really early in the morning or evening to enjoy the grounds.
