A Wonderful peaceful place
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed today

You must be prepared to visit this site, proper dress, on time since it has limited opening hours. Once you are in it's a wonderful place and very peaceful. A must visit.

Very limited access. Know your timing.
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 1 day ago

We had not read up on how to enter but when we finally got the location and timing right we were glad we visited and walked respectfully around the Temple Mount. Get to the line much earlier than you hope to get in. Be patient.

Rude to Christians but a beautiful place
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 1 day ago

One of the most beautiful places. But the guards are rude, listen to your conversations to be sure you aren't praying. My ankles were showing and you would have thought it was the end of the world. Go anyway. It is a magnificent place.

"Things Get Squirrely In A Hurry On The Temple Mount"

Security was tight the day we went and there was a "skirmish" between the Jewish guards and the Muslims. We were told to "RUN!" by several Muslim men as a fight broke out. Even then we actually felt safe. It was so interesting to be educated about what the actual fighting...

Security was tight the day we went and there was a "skirmish" between the Jewish guards and the Muslims. We were told to "RUN!" by several Muslim men as a fight broke out. Even then we actually felt safe. It was so interesting to be educated about what the actual fighting is about there in Israel and the West Bank.

Truly Holy Ground!

A lot of caveats and planning for a visit to the Temple Mount: - Access for non-Muslims is highly restricted by date, time, and season. A visit here requires planning. Don't think you can just show up and go. - Access for non-Muslims is restricted to the Dung Gate, itself accessed using the wooden bridge...

A lot of caveats and planning for a visit to the Temple Mount: - Access for non-Muslims is highly restricted by date, time, and season. A visit here requires planning. Don't think you can just show up and go. - Access for non-Muslims is restricted to the Dung Gate, itself accessed using the wooden bridge at the Western Wall. - You will need your passport. You will be turned away without it. - This is the site of the Garden of Eden; the site where Abraham attempted to offer Isaac to God before sacrificing a ram; the site of the First & Second Temples, where the Spirit of God dwelt among men. It is Holy Ground. Some denominations and sects prohibit accessing the Mount. It is not unusual to see shoeless people in deference to the site. Be respectful and solemn. - Non-Muslims cannot access the Al Aqsa Mosque. As such, you are on a sightseeing tour. With all of the above planning and understanding, it will be a momentous visit. We had an enjoyable time here, even if brief. It was worth the planning!
