The Aqsa Mosque, one of the top holiest sites in Islam is built on top of Temple Mount. It is forbidden for non moslems to enter however since I spoke Arabic, I was able to persuade the kind gentleman to let me in and have a look around. Of course, a little monetary donation was requested. I paid him, covered myself up, and got in. Architecturally speaking it was a beautiful structure . Initially built as a small prayer house on top of King Harod's square, it has been rebuilt and expanded several times after being destroyed by several earthquakes. The current structure dates back to the 11th century. During the crusaders, the Mosque was used as a palace. I loved the inside structure with the mosaics and the carvings and the not to be missed ceiling. If you can figure out a way to go in, then by all means go in. I give it my GoldnAdvice seal of approval.

the dome of the rock is in the same complex. the al aqsa mosque itself is magnificent and sprawling with gardens and fountains. entry is restricted to muslims so know your prayers if you hope to enter and women need to wear a long skirt and men full trousers. we were very disappointed that we were made to shell out a few hundred NIS by a local tout to be able to visit inside. this is not to be done. report this if it happens to you. our guide was amazing but wasnt allowed to enter as he wasnt muslim. however, he found a way for us to get to the all aqsa without going via the western wall and waiting in huge que's.
