An incredible experience, amazing history and mind-blowing architecture and art. Dress modestly, long trousers and long sleeves for men, and long skirts with hair full covered for women.

Although we had to wait in line to enter, it was worth it to stand on the site where the Temple was. Just be prepared. Dress must be very conservative and no religous symbols are allowed.
