Be respectful. But go. The history of this place is beyond measure. Make sure you look beyond the visible, and remember what was here.

Its been 3 years on and I still miss the place. If you get to visit the this place during Azan (muslim call to prayer) is spectacular added bonus. Should be number one on your Jerusalem must do list.

If another war starts, it will probably be over this site ; so visit to see what it is all about. The platform is quite peaceful (if you ignore the heavily armed Israeli police) and quiet. The mosque is beautiful from the outside and Muslims...More

The temple mount was quite pretty and we got there early so there weren't many people. Make sure to check the open hours as it is limited and there is only one entrance for non-Muslims which is best found from the Western wall area. If...More
