Temple Mount, Jerusalem | Israel Top Attractions

Al-Haram Al-Sharif | Temple Mount

Al-Haram Al-Sharif | Temple Mount

For the Jews, the world was created and will finally end at Al-Haram Al-Sharif or the Temple Mount. Muslims, on the other hand, pray at the third holiest site of Islam - Al Aqsa mosque (The former Qibla of Islam) and believe that the Dome of the Rock is the where Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) ascended to heaven. The place is equally important for Christians as well.

The complete 35-acre compound is referred to as al-Haram al-Sharif, or the Noble Sanctuary, by Muslims, and as the Temple Mount by Jews.

Simply put, it is a place of great religious significance and deep faith. It is also one of the world's most recognizable landmarks or attractions. So, whether you are religious or not, a vacation in Jerusalem is incomplete without a tour to the Temple Mount.

Make sure to explore the enclosure walls, especially the 5 most important points of interest-Bab al-Magharibeh, Chain Gate, Cotton Merchants' Gate, Iron Gate, and the Watchman's Gate.

You should also explore the Temple Platform, the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the rest of the site that connects it to the Dome of the Rock.

Visit to the Temple Mount is often a part of the sightseeing tour around Jerusalem. But you can make it a half-day affair, so you can check out every nook and cranny at your leisure. Book a tour with La Vacanza and you can choose from any of the sightseeing package tours to Jerusalem on offer. Or, let us customize one for you if you so desire.
