Never went inside,but admired it from outside.A significant and important site for the muslim faith that is entrenched in Jerusalem's long history.Stunning building and to view the inside is next on my list when i return in the future......

Hours of entrance are limited, the line ups are very long, security is as if you are at an airport. There is a strong chance you may not get in. We got there at 1pm, in order to get in when it opened at 1:30. It closes at 2:30 so needless to say, many people would be turned away. To be truthful, nothing to see other than the Dome. You can probably get a good photo of it from a high point in the Old City. Once in we were approached by Muslims who insisted we take their literature....we refused politely several times but eventually had to give three firm nos. The Arabs were rather rude to the Jewish men who had come in, so the police and border patrol came to the aid of the Jewish men. This is a very sacred site to the Jews.

Sorry for any offense. But we were very very modestly dressed especially knowing we were going here. Mind you it was in the high 90 degrees. I was wearing long sleeve high neck blouse but was still told to wear my scarf. Ok. Then I was carrying in my purse a rosary. I did not intend to pray with it, wear it nor even bring it out. I had it because I am Catholic and I ALWAYS have a rosary with me. They were making people take them out of their bag and leave them behind. I was not going to do this so I hid it. Again, I was not their to pray nor display my faith. I was there as a site seeing venture. We were followed and listened to and told who knows what in a language that we did not understand. If they don't want you in there, or if you are only going so that you can be harassed, maybe it is best to close the facility off to any tourists. Besides you only get to go on the grounds and not inside and quite honestly there are many views of Jerusalem from many other areas in the city. It was the most nerve wracking experience we have ever had. And if you read up on it, it is obvious that they harass people all the time so why bother?

Beautiful but dissapointing

Amazing photo opportunity from the plaza side. However, you need a passport to enter, as a non-Muslim you can only go to the top and surrounding areas, not inside. This was a little disappointing. not sure whether it incurs a charge as I didn't go in.
