The Muslims reigned in Jerusalem for hundreds of years. The influence of the Muslim religion and culture is apparent all over the Old City. The Muslim Quarter is the largest of the four quarters of the Old City and it holds many important sites including an impressive open door market (the shuk) which is accessible from a few of the gates.
On this tour you will enter through Damascus Gate into the heart of the Muslim Quarter, visit Christian sites, see the full size of the Temple Mount, visit the Small Kotel and learn about buildings from different Islamic periods.
