A hill in the eastern part of Old Jerusalem is of special significance to the world's three major religions. It was reputedly the site of the first and second Jewish Temple, and since the 7th century has contained two Muslim shrines.

Looked forward to going there but better off staying away and looking from a distance. Muslims singling out women and telling them what they can and cannot wear. It is not even their holy site anyway and they have no right to enforce their beliefs...More

As a European, Christian visitor, this was quite a difficult site to visit. It is a holy site for Muslims and Jews, and though Christians believe that Jesus came here, its Christian connections are completely absent when you get here, as indeed are its Jewish...More

This place looks far more impressive from a distance. I was annoyed by some of the restrictions placed on visitors, and surprised by heaps of rubble in some places that looked like construction sites--but weren't. There are places where the site is not at all...More

Such a disappointment when so many of the historically important sites in Old Jerusalem are open to all. Here they have restrictions, fees and palpable dislike for all non Muslims. We were made to feel most unwelcome. This surely reflects very badly on those who...More

The Temple Mount, site of the ancient First and Second Holy Temples, is accessible to non-Moslems through a ramp near the Dung Gate. Because the Moslem religious trust, the Wakf, has attempted to cover over or remove archaelogical artifacts from the Temples, it's best to...More

As a woman visiting the temple mount, is it okay for me to wear pants, or is a long skirt required? Also, do I need to bring a head scarf?

Head covering is not required, nor is a dress but your skin on your legs and arms must be completely covered by pants, short, dress, etc.
The website says opening hours are 12:30-1:30 in winter and 1:30-2:30 in summer; but is April winter or summer?

April is summer time. Temple Mount for non-Muslims is open from 7am to 11am and then from 12.30 to 1.30. Suggest that you visit in the morning at 7am.
