It is an interesting place and being both a Mosque and a church makes it even more interesting, You have to pay 10 shekels to see it. It is meant to be the spot where Jesus ascended into Heaven. You can stand on that sport...More

The people at the entrance are there to push you until you give them money... they are not allowed to charge any fee, but they do it. They make you feel totally uncomfortable and unsafe by their presence, and there's even a feeling of harassment....More

To understand that this place is actually a mosque 364 days a year was something I found interesting. If you're just looking at it, you'll never be able to appreciate the intricacies. Make sure you have a guide explaining things to you. Totally worth it.
