PLEASE DO YOUR ITINERARY HOMEWORK

This 2* review is given in the basis that it observes the Jewish Sabbath and I missed visiting it up close and personal.

From other people's pic it's a worthwhile trip, so please plan ahead 🙈

This was our second time to see the Dome of the Rock. The first time was on a tour with a guide. This time we lined up around 8:00 on a Sunday Morning. The line was modest and we were able to enter the area around 8:30. The building itself is magnificent and the views from the Temple Mount/Al- Haram al-Sharif are outstanding. Thankfully, it was very peaceful during our visit and the quietness was appreciated. Treat this sensitive area with respect and you will be rewarded.

Unfortunately there is a discrimination since September 2000, that non-muslims are not allowed to visit the Dome of the Rock, just you are allowed on the mount in the mornings and you can get only pictures from the outside.

The glistening, golden Islamic "Dome of the Rock" is visible from throughout Jerusalem, erected prominently upon Temple Mount. Built in the 7th Century, and later set with colorful mosaic tiles under Suleiman I in 1561, only the exterior of this imposing edifice can be viewed by non-Muslims. This is an impressive architectural structure, which people of any religion can appreciate while walking the venerated acreage of Temple Mount.

You cannot travel to Jerusalem and not go to the Dome of the Rock. There are restricted visiting times for non Muslims so check when it is possible to go.

The Dome of the Rock dominates the Temple Mount. Unintentionally, I managed to capture it in numerous photos that I took of the Jerusalem skyline. Although there are taller structures, the whopping size of the gold-plated dome immediately draws the eye (especially pretty shining in the sun). I admired from afar. The Dome covers a slab of rock that is sacred to Muslims and Jews. Everyone regardless of religion is welcome in the plaza; only Muslims can enter the Dome.

We usually have trouble on the Temple Mount, guards yelling at us and making us cover up more than others. However, this time was great. It was cool and peaceful, no one yelled, and everyone managed to be dressed to their liking. It made it a much nicer moment on the Temple Mount.
