Al Aqsa Mosque is situated at south end of the Temple Mount a couple minutes walk from the iconic Dome of the Rock. This is the 3rd holiest site in the Islamic world and a essential place to visit in Jerusalem for Muslims. Note: Unfortunately, non-Muslims are not allowed to enter Al Aqsa Mosque. However, you can still enjoy the outside architecture for a few minutes as part of your visit to the Dome of the Rock. You can see the mosque from up front after entering the Morocco Gate (Gate of the Moors) into the Temple Mount grounds. The facade features modest decorative carvings and numerous stone arches that are Romanesque in style. If visiting the archeological park outside the Temple Mount you can see the other side of Al Aqsa Mosque, including the dark coloured dome and the tower section constructed during the Crusader period. You can also spot Al Aqsa Mosque quite clearly from the Mount of Olives if you intend to do a bit of sightseeing here.

History unfolding before your eyes

Not as famous as the Dome on the Rock but just as beautiful and as steeped in history and myth. A place for reflection no matter what faith, or even if no faith. Escape the heat of the sun and local politics inside these cool walls. A must see.

A must for every MUSLIM

Al Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem We just walked from the Dom of the Rock to Al Aqsa Mosque its five minutes only, and you can noticed that the Mosque directly facing the Dome of the Rock, and the dome is at the south end over the mihrab. I want to give explain to all travelers that Al-Aqsa Mosque is the most important mosque in Jerusalem, and it's Located on the Al-Haram Al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary) or Temple Mount, it is the third holiest site in Islam after Mecca and Medina( two cities located at Saudi Arabia). It is the central focus of the Muslim community in Jerusalem, hosting daily Al Aqsa Mosque Built by the Templar's, the three central bays of the facade are Romanesque in style, with the zigzag decoration and blind arches seen more commonly in 11th- and 12th-century European churches. The outer arches added by the Mamelukes in the 14th century follow the same general design. Entrance is through the central arch. Its spacious interior, divided by columns into seven aisles, allows room for more than 4000 Muslims to prostrate themselves on the carpeted floor during worship. I am so happy I had the chance to pray Al-Aser prayer; I was blessed by visiting the Mosque.

Nice mosque
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on February 14, 2017

I came here only for beautiful arhitecture of Temple Mount and I disregarded this mosque. It is very big and with nice inside, but compared with other mosques, not worth too much attention.
