Temple Mount, Jerusalem
One of the world's most sacred places historically identified as the site of the second Jewish Temple, Temple Mount is presently dominated by some of the most important Muslim shrines, including the Dome of the Rock. In Judaism, the hill has been known as the site of Mount Zion, the location of Solomon's Temple, and as the place where Abraham nearly sacrificed his firstborn son to prove his devotion to Yahweh. According to the Talmud, the hill is also the site from where God collected the dust to create Adam. For Sunni Muslims, this is the place from which the Holy Prophet ascended to heaven. Marked by a long history of religious conflicts, the hill remains one of the world's most contested holy sites. The Mount can be reached through 11 gates on Herodian walls--only one being reserved for non-Muslims. Getting into the site can be a challenge--it is only open during very specific time slots and, thus, lines are often long. Arrive early for your best chance to get in, and be aware that modest clothing (for both men and women) is required.

Temple Mount Reviews
Sopra il Muro del Pianto ecco le moschee d'oro e d'argento dominare la città e portare con loro storie millenarie. Controlli accurati aiutano a tenere sorvegkiato la spianata, da vedere in ogni occasi... more »Above the Western Wall are the golden and silver mosques dominate the city and bring with them millennial stories. Accurate controls help keep the esplanade, to be seen at every opportunity, and enter the city's millennial history. DON'T MISS IT.
Estupendo sitio para pasear y poder ver la mezquita al aqsa y la cúpula de roca. Es una auténtica lástima que solo puedan entrar musulmanes en todos estos sitios. Hay que ir a unas horas determinadas ... more »Great place to walk around and be able to see the mosque to the aqsa and the rock dome. It's a real shame that only Muslims can get into all these places. You have to go to certain times as it is not accessible all day.
This place is world's third largest biggest mosque in all over the world.this place is sacred for Islam Christianity Judaism .so the debate will continue running.
It's not possible to forget these places. History of humanity, history of religion; everything is here! Meaninglessly living together is so difficult. The faithful people have no respect anymore to each other. You can see it best in these lands. All the best!
