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

Christians believe Jesus ascended into heaven from a high mountain near the holy city, so this is as likely a place as any. I have to admit that I find the alleged last footprint of the Lord in the rock as a bit dubious. That...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.
