Hot Spot - Temple Mount: Where Religion, History and Geopolitics Overlap
Very passionate about showing guests around Jerusalem, a city rich with culture, heritage, faith and conflict. I am fascinated with the history of the region, with its many cultures and religions, and feel pillaged to meet guests from all over the world. I love exchanging knowledge and experiences with my guests while walking and visiting the sites of the beautiful holy city. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the tour and Jerusalem.
The Temple Mount - Haram a Sharif, Holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians. International Flashpoint.

Important details on rules for non Muslim visitors to.
Religious items and books of other faiths are not allowed through the security check leading to the Temple Mount. If you are carrying this type of item in your bags you might be turned away at the security gate.
Many Rabbis rule that it is forbidden to enter the Temple Mount because of the holiness of the site. Those who do ascend first prepare themselves by immerging in ritual bath and do not wear leather shoes. Jewish visitors should look into this and make their own decision pre arrival.
Please send a direct message to the guide of this tour to let me know if you are an observant Jew and plan to come on this tour as I can plan the path appropriately.
