Only times open are 7-11 and 130 to 230. Ever time people line up for 1-2 hours ahead of time. Why can they hand out tickets so that u can come back at the appropriate time? Must cover shoulder head and legs.

You need to check the times that it is open to non-Muslims. We got there just before 13.00 to queue for 13.30 to 14.30 entry. Sometimes if there are security concerns, entry can be denied at the last minute. We were grateful that this was...More

Know what to expect and follow directions. You must pass through security If you are showing too much skin you will be given modest clothing to wear. No touching and no gestures during pictures. Remain reverent at all times and follow directions without question

Be respectful and wear a covering over your shoulders and elbows. Don’t bring your backpack as it’s easier to go through security without it. Our guide gave us interesting facts about the area. This is where the original Temple was built and the Western Wall...More

We were in the Holy Land for a tour of the religious sites and got the opportunity to see the Temple Mount and the surrounding grounds. The views are spectacular! The history of this area is so important to three faiths and can't be missed.
