A special opportunity to see the Temple Mount from up close

The Temple Mount, and at its center the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque, is the most prominent and distinct symbol on the skyline of Jerusalem. The rectangular complex measures 150,000 square meters and occupies one-sixth of the area of Jerusalem’s Old City. Today, on the Mount sit some of the most architecturally beautiful and impressive buildings in the world - the golden Dome of the Rock surrounding the Foundation Stone, and at the southern end, al-Aqsa Mosque. During the daily routine, you can see masses gathering to pray, celebrating special ceremonies, groups of tourists from the entire world, and even children from the Muslim Quarter playing soccer in the courtyards of the holy compound. But behind these everyday sights, sits a multi-faceted symbol and the central, most important holy place in the entire Middle East, both religiously and politically.
